What is an uncontested divorce and how does one work?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce/Separation on Sunday, December 29, 2019. Understanding how an uncontested divorce is different from a divorce that is being contested is helpful for divorcing couples to understand. Divorcing couples should ensure they have all of their questions answered about the divorce process and how an uncontested divorce works when compared to a contested divorce.

Important child support considerations during divorce

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Thursday, December 19, 2019. Money is often the source of many disputes.

The basics of third-party visitation rights

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Friday, December 13, 2019. Third-party visitation rights are an important part of the child custody process to be familiar with. Referred to as third-party visitation rights, nonparent visitation rights or sometimes grandparent visitation, parents and families facing child custody concerns should be familiar with all of the different types of child custody, including third-party child custody.

Emergency military service may modify child support order

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Thursday, December 5, 2019. For noncustodial parents, a child support obligation can take a financial toll.

This is especially true when changed circumstances reduce a noncustodial parent’s income. Whether on account of reduced hours or decreased pay, noncustodial parents who see their income drop may be able to successfully seek a child support modification, which would reduce their
