Steps working parents can take to protect child custody interests

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Friday, November 29, 2019. Many parents in the Midwest struggle to find an appropriate work-life balance.

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Thursday, November 21, 2019. Family law matters are not easy to address not matter the situation.

Child custody and medical expenses

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Thursday, November 7, 2019. The cost of raising a child is quite expensive.
