Avoiding bitter child custody battles benefits you and your kids

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Thursday, February 27, 2020. While divorce is difficult for parents, it is even more devastating for children. Parents wish to protect their children from the negative effect of divorce and child custody proceedings. What many divorcing parents fail to realize is that kids can be experts at hiding the pain they feel.

The order of divorce and bankruptcy can help save money

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Financial stress is a big problem in marriages or any other arrangement that combines emotions with the practical issues of life.

Debts and divorce: How can you divide yours?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Property Division on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.

Daughter had to pay her own child support to keep mother free

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. Child support can be a difficult obligation to fulfill in Missouri.

A woman living in Vernon County with her boyfriend made the news recently when she was unable to make her child support payments. Her medical conditions made it


Starting on a custody plan? You can ask for support

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Custody on Tuesday, February 4, 2020. You love your children, and you want to make sure you get plenty of time with them.
