dallas-ft. worth Chapter






Hello, I'm Geni Manning, DFW Chapter Director for the National Association of Divorce Professionals (NADP). NADP connects four major industries: Legal, Financial, Mental Health and Residential to better serve our divorcing clients with knowledge, skills and resources. 

The first of its kind, the NADP is an Association committed to growing and strengthening the businesses of professionals like you who serve individuals struggling through the divorce process. Since 2015, The NADP ensures that strategic collaboration, divorce-centered education, and comprehensive professional development, are regularly available to its members.

When you become a part of the NADP and our local chapter, you will expand your understanding of the entire divorce process, making you a better professional for your client during a very difficult time. The targeted connections and the divorce specific education the NADP and our DFW chapter provides will add tremendous value to your overall business and your clients experience!


In our mastermind group, you will have the opportunity to discuss your challenges, celebrate your successes, and receive feedback and guidance from a trusted network. It is a safe and nurturing environment where we can push ourselves to new heights and unlock our full potential.


Our DFW Chapter officially launched January 1, 2024. This is your chance to get in on the ground floor and and be part of a community of like-minded individuals who are dedicated to professional growth, while helping divorcing couples in a holistic way.


This webpage will go into more details about NADP and our chapter and hopefully answer any questions you may have. Positions are limited to only three professionals per specialty, with a waiting list for those that are filled. Let's schedule a quick conversation and see if we are a fit to mutually benefit one another and get you locked in for this great opportunity.

guiding principles


The NADP’s mission is to help our members come together nationally and locally in a powerful and productive way to change how their clients experience divorce, and ultimately make a positive impact on the entire process.


At the NADP we believe that in order to achieve the best results for one’s clients, our members must be equipped with the right divorce resources and knowledge.


Divorce Professionals Are In High Demand.
Don’t Get Lost In The Crowd.

Every divorcing couple has to hit the 'RESET' button to start the divorce process and move forward with their new chapter in life.


Each couple has the daunting task of separating everything. That means, new banks, insurance, wills, estate planning, new bookkeepers and CPAs, new counselors and life coaches...and the list goes on.

There are many professionals involved pre, during and post divorce. This is why NADP has connected the following four industries.  

professions & specialties accepted by nadp



Divorce can be complex involving many legal issues including but not limited to selling the home, dividing a business, immigration status, estate planning, domestic violence, filing bankruptcy, and tax implications.
