Child support can be broad in nature

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Friday, April 26, 2019. If you’re a parent in the Midwest, then you know that raising a child can be an expensive endeavor. Merely feeding children can be enough to send shockwaves across one’s financial foundation, let alone clothing, schooling and extracurricular expenses. Fortunately, all parents should share in the financial responsibility of raising their children. This is why the law allows for custodial parents to seek child support from their noncustodial counterparts. There is often some confusion about what child support can actually cover, though. While many


Legal help with the complexities of a high net-worth divorce

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce/Separation on Friday, April 19, 2019. Divorce is rarely easy, but divorces can be especially complex for people with a high net worth. This is because wealthy individuals tend to own complex assets. In all divorces, the parties must divide their marital property. Missouri and most other states follow a standard known as “equitable division.” This means that the division of property must meet legal guidelines of fairness. In some cases, this can be accomplished by little more than splitting bank accounts, selling property and dividing the proceeds. By contrast, a


Child custody, visitation, and parental relocation

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Wednesday, April 17, 2019. Many people hope that their child custody issues will be resolved once and for all upon separation or divorce. The truth of the matter, though, is that child custody and visitation disputes can arise long after a couple splits. While Midwest parents need competent legal advocacy when negotiating or litigating child custody matters the first time around, they may also need that assistance when they deal with child custody and visitation modifications. One commonly seen problem is parental relocation. This issue arises when a


Property division includes allocating marital debts

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Wednesday, April 10, 2019. Divorce can be a costly endeavor. After all, as we discussed previously on this blog, marital property is subject to the property division process. While disputes can arise as to what, exactly, qualifies as marital property, there is another aspect to property division that shouldn’t be overlooked: debt. Some forms of debt are relatively easy to handle during the marriage dissolution process. The party that takes the marital home, for example, will most likely take on its mortgage payments. The same holds true with


How substance abuse can effect child custody

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Thursday, April 4, 2019. The Midwest, and America as a whole, is still in the throes of a drug epidemic. While positions on marijuana use have relaxed, the use of harder drugs like cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin are becoming more common. Sadly, many of those who struggle with drug addiction act as custodial parents. In these situations, children can be put in harm’s way, and the state may intervene to ensure that they’re well-being is protected. Before it gets to that point, though, noncustodial parents may want to


What is legal separation?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce/Separation on Thursday, April 4, 2019. Legal separation is an important tool spouses considering divorce can use to their benefit. Because preparing for a divorce can be a stressful and emotional time, it is helpful for divorcing spouses to ensure all their questions related to the separation and divorce process are answered. Legal separation is a specific legal process that does not end a marriage but does define the rights and obligations of the spouses while they are legally separated. A legal separation can clarify concerns related to child custody, child
