Hi, I'm Leah Hadley

I have worked with hundreds of individuals and couples over the years. Few are familiar with all they need to know prior to proceeding with a divorce and rely heavily on their attorney's expertise.

I still remember my first appointment with my attorney when I got divorced. She was someone who I knew previously and was still nervous about meeting with her. Feelings of uncertainty about the process and about my future overwhelmed me. In this course, you will get information that you need to prepare for that appointment if you choose to work with an attorney. You will also receive resources that I provide my one-on-one clients.

In this step-by-step guide, you will create a plan that will reduce the stress of the unknown and help you determine your next steps.
