A brief look at legal custody

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Thursday, October 31, 2019. Family law matters can be complex.

What is the collaborative divorce process?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce/Separation on Thursday, October 24, 2019. It can be challenging to go through the ending of a marriage.

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Thursday, October 17, 2019. There’s nothing easy about divorce.
