"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

-Shannon McParland, Principal, Sioux Trail Elementary

(LEAD) Legal and Economic Aspects of Divorce

LEAD is a 3 1/2 hour one-time educational seminar around legal and economic issues couples face when they divorce or separate. Headway's LEAD seminar is designed to be a basic introduction to the complex decision-making process of meeting the needs of the involved children, managing the strong emotions parents often experience dealing with time and money, and navigating the foreign and sometimes confusing nature of law and finance. A family lawyer will present information parents will find useful in mapping out their course through this aspect in the process of divorce or separation. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the seminar. This program satisfies the court requirement for Legal and Economic Aspects of Divorce.

Held in Richfield and Monticello.

**Parents in a contested divorce are required by Minnesota state law to attend eight hours of parent education, which is satisfied by taking both Co-Parenting and Legal and Economic Aspects of Divorce (LEAD). Parents can attend together or alone.**

Check with the court for your specific requirements.
