If child support obligations are overwhelming, reach out for help

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Friday, June 12, 2020. Child support is an essential protection and benefit that is often granted to children when their parents divorce or separate. The goal of support is to provide the child with the same financial support that they would have received if both parents were residing in the same household. In Kansas, much like in other states, child support is normally paid by the parent who sees the child less or who earns more.

How do Missouri families get child support?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Tuesday, June 9, 2020. No one has a child thinking that court-mandated child support will be part of their lives.

However, there are only a few people who are directly responsible for a child’s safety and upbringing. In most cases, these are parents, but what if they can’t support a child together?
