The Certified Amicable Divorce Professional (CADP) Designation is offered only to members of the Amicable Divorce Network. This designation focuses on the life cycle of a divorce and goes step by step down the “Road of Resolution” to give professionals a deeper understanding of how to assist clients through the divorce process in a low conflict, child focused and efficient manner. The certification is a 10 hour course taught over a two day period during an in person training.

In 2024, the certification will be offered at the Graduate Hotel in Nashville, TN on March 7-8. Once achieving the designation, professionals may represent themselves as CADPs, use the electronic badge to evidence their achievement and take specialty designations. In 2024, Specialty Designations will be offered for current CADPs on March 7-8, 2024, with one being also offered on March 9, 2024 for current and new CADPs.
