The National Association of Divorce Professionals (NADP), the first of its kind, is an association unifying vetted professionals from the legal, financial, mental health and residential industries who serve clients going through ALL stages of divorce. We are committed to making a positive impact on the divorce process through helping our members have access to strategic alliances, divorce-centered education and comprehensive professional development.    

Every divorce is unique and has its own challenges so having an abundance of qualified resources at your fingertips is imperative to achieve a positive outcome for your clients. 

Being part of the NADP community will help you connect with professionals from around the world that can offer you and your divorcing clients tremendous support, as well as qualified referrals for your business/practice.   

As an NADP member we expect you to attend two extremely valuable meetings per month:

#1 – The NADP Member Online Meeting

Our online member meetings are held on the Third Tuesday every month from 12:00 – 1:30 pm EST.

Member Online Meeting include:

  • NADP Ed Talks presented by Thought Leaders and Divorce-Industry Experts
  • Opportunity to network and connect with fellow members
  • Association Updates/Announcements

#2 – The NADP Monthly Marketing Workshop

As a member of the NADP, your access to professional divorce education and resources, puts you ahead of others in the same profession who do not have the same access.  For this reason, we want to help you stand out in your community to divorcing clients by providing you valuable marketing education. This is a win-win for you and your future clients. The NADP Marketing Workshop is held the third Thursday from 12:00 – 1:00 pm EST.

Monthly Marketing Workshops include:

  • Marketing education led by industry experts including but not limited to: social media management, public relations, branding, communication, software, best business practices, applications, podcasts, human resources, website development, copywriting, blogging, etc.

*If you are unable to attend, you will have access to the recordings.

Making connections is an important part of this industry and you should be prepared to invest some time in meeting NADP members through phone calls, zoom meetings and one-to-ones.  Through our directory, monthly meetings and local events, you can make those connections faster and easier.  Ultimately, your success will be reflected in the time and effort you put in.   

  • Access to our monthly online member meetings for divorce-centered education by industry experts and networking with other members from across the world.

The NADP is a community of both professionals who have many years’ experience working with divorcing clients as well as those who are new to the industry.  The ability to be able to learn and educate based on level of divorce experience is what makes the NADP so special. So, if you do not have experience working with divorcing clients, we expect you to use your NADP membership to learn how to best serve any future divorcing clients you might have. The divorce process is far different from other transactions in most industries, so building your knowledge and resources will make you a far better choice for our members to collaborate with you.

The NADP is the first business-to-business organization uniting various industries in the divorce space.  There are several associations that recognize certain areas of expertise or professions, but the NADP is the only one bringing together all of the professionals who provide a service that is directly involved in the process. Whether you are in the legal, financial, mental health or residential field, having one solid platform to connect with, be supported by and learn from other professionals outside of your own industry is not only essential, but will positively change the way you serve divorcing clients.

$399 per year, plus a $149 application fee.
