Palm Harbor, FL March 22, 2019 – There is a new trend in the divorce industry. The professionals who hold the families’ hands going through the divorce process are CONSCIOUSLY focusing on making the impact of the split less traumatic for the whole family.
As a member of The National Association of Divorce Professionals, we are at the forefront of the trend leading the movement to change the way families experience divorce.
As Wealth Advisors we believe our clients who are going through a divorce need to develop a financial plan for them to successfully transition to the next chapter in their lives as well as their childrens. We bring the future into the present so they can do something about it today. We are able to show them there is hope and light at the end of the tunnel. As a NADP member I am able to be the clients quarterback and collaborate with other needed professional resources and connections I have made to help them successfully get through the divorce process.
Whether it’s the collaborative process, mediation or litigation, The NADP and its members believe that a smoother transition is possible for those divorcing and that families going through the process can have a softer, gentler landing.
ROUGHLY 50% OF COUPLES DIVORCE IN THE UNITED STATES BUT STUDIES SHOW THAT 40% OF THEM BELIEVE THAT THEY DIDN’T DO ENOUGH BEFORE MAKING A DECISION TO DIVORCE. AS WEALTH ADVISORS – WE BELIEVE THAT IF DIVORCE PROFESSIONALS COMMUNICATED WITH ONE ANOTHER AND TOOK A HOLISTIC APPROACH, WE WOULD BE ABLE TO HELP THOSE COUPLES MAKE BETTER DECISIONS.
NADP Co-founder and Communication Skills Coach, Liz Becker says, “Children are always the collateral effect of everything in a divorce. That’s why we must work together to change the experience of divorce for all involved.”
As an NADP member, I believe we can create change in the industry by working together and changing the way we approach and manage each individual client.
“We believe that a couple can be changed and not destroyed. We know that the entire process can be done better, and we know that it takes a village to get a couple divorced,” says NADP Co-Founder Vicky Townsend. “The NADP brings that village together, so they can have highly vetted, and compassionate resources at their fingertips, and they can learn from each other.”
I am proud to be a member of The NADP, the first organization of its kind that creates a unique collaborative environment for divorce professionals nationwide.
NADP’s in-person and online platform brings together all divorce industry professionals who believe in educating and creating connections with each other in order to serve their clients better.
At monthly meetings, chapter members share their expertise with each other through presentations called “NADP EDTalks.”
For example, an attorney learns from an accountant how recent tax changes may affect their client. Or, a real estate professional learns from a psychologist the effects that staging a home may have on a couple’s young children.
The NADP and the movement started in Florida. I am a member of the Pinellas North chapter. The NADP has chapters in Florida, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, California, and are expanding across the country quickly.
