The Complete Breakdown Of The Expanded CDLP Certification Program

Certified Divorce Lending Professional 

Offered by the Divorce Lending Association, the Certified Divorce Lending Professional Certification program is a credible designation for mortgage professionals with a strong desire to advance their careers working with divorcing clients, attorneys and other divorce professionals. Founded in 2014, the CDLP business program is designed to prepare you to become an integral member of the professional divorce team. 

What is a Certified Divorce Lending Professional?

A Certified Divorce Lending Professional brings the financial knowledge and expertise of a solid understanding of the connection between Divorce and Family Law, IRS Tax Rules and mortgage financing strategies as they all relate to real estate and mortgage financing in a divorce situation.

In over 70% of all divorces in the United States real estate is involved and most often, so is the need for mortgage financing. Due to the unique mortgage financing requirements that divorcing clients often face, a Certified Divorce Lending Professional is a major member of the Professional Divorce Team.

The role of the CDLP is to not only help the divorcing client, but the other members of the professional divorce team understand the opportunities available as well as the challenges divorce can bring to mortgage financing during and after the divorce. When the CDLP is involved during the divorce process and not after the fact, many potential financing struggles can be avoided with valuable and educated input from the Certified Divorce Lending Professional.  

The CDLP understands their role is not to provide legal or tax advice. Their role on the professional divorce team is to help by providing insight on mortgage financing opportunities and recognize potential legal or tax concerns that may arise in any given circumstance while bringing these concerns or opportunities to the attention of other team members.

  • Serve as a neutral facilitator rather than as an advocate and advisor representing only one party in the divorce.
  • Become an essential part of the professional divorce team and become involved early in the process rather than as a post-decree referral.
  • Recognize potential legal and tax implications with regards to mortgage financing in divorce situations.
  • Identify potential concerns with support/maintenance structures that may conflict with mortgage financing opportunities.
  • Implement a strategic divorce settlement agreement while working with the professional divorce team that ensures the best opportunities to secure mortgage financing post divorce.
  • Work with divorcing couples in a collaborative setting and other Alternative Dispute Resolution methods.
  • Become an Effective Expert Witness.
  • Build your practice as a Certified Divorce Lending Professional.
  • And So Much More!

 How current is your material?

The material in the CDLP course is updated regularly and multiple times per year to include any industry changes of significance. When there is any type of an update, all current CDLPs are notified of the changes so they are kept informed and up to date to better service their referral partners and clients. 

Why is a Certification important to have?

It's a stamp of excellence: a certification tells your referral partners and clients that you are well-qualified and that you take your career seriously. Investing in your knowledge and education demonstrates a commitment to your profession and that you are willing to invest time and money into your success. 

Certification keeps you current: One of the most important reasons to get certified is that it helps you stay ahead of the competition. If you truly want to succeed in the divorce lending industry, you need to stay current in all regulations that affect your position. Always keep learning and you'll have a knowledge base that will make you an asset far into the future.

What's the difference between a "certification" and a "designation"?

These terms are usually used interchangeably, even though some credentialing organizations may try to create artificial distinctions between them. The key is to look for strong education supported by ongoing requirements: does the mark require experience as a prerequisite and continuing education and adherence to a strong ethical code, and can the credential be removed if participants are not compliant.

 

What continuing education is required to maintain the CDLP certification and why is it necessary?

2 hours of continuing education is required each year to maintain an active CDLP Certification. CE is offered directly by the Divorce Lending Association and includes industry updates from family law, to tax changes to guidelines. 

The CE requirements are mandated to ensure that CDLPs are current on changes that will affect their divorcing clients. We do not believe in 'one and done' programs as these types of programs ultimately fail the participant and clients.

 

How long does the online course take to complete?

Please allow at least 20 total hours to completely get through the online modules and study guide. The CDLP certification test is available once you have completed the last module. There is a lot of information to cover and the learning process should never end.  

How long do I have to complete the CDLP Certification Course?

There is no time frame. The online CDLP Certification Program is available 24/7 and we understand you have other commitments. Obviously, the sooner you finish the sooner you start building your practice!

What are the requirements for passing the CDLP Certification Exam?

The CDLP Certification exam consists of 100 multiple choice questions and is available upon completion of the training modules and assessments. A score of 80% is required to successfully pass the exam. Should you need to retake the exam, you may do so.
