On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Parents are always permitted a lot of latitude in how they raise their children.

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. This is especially true for divorcing parents in Missouri and other Midwestern states.

However, passing this money onto an ex is for the benefit of the child or children involved, allowing for that parent to properly meet the needs of the child and provide them

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Thursday, October 3, 2019. There’s no doubt that raising a child is expensive.

Fortunately, these custodial parents have the right to seek child support from their child’s other parent, which can actually be

Ways to settle a child support dispute

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Thursday, August 29, 2019. Raising a child is an enormous financial endeavor. Food costs alone can skyrocket as children age, not to mention other massive expenses like childcare and education. Far too often custodial parents try to bear the full brunt of this financial responsibility, but in many cases, it just isn’t feasible. Financially providing for a child is a shared duty to be carried by both parents, which is why custodial parents need to do everything they can to secure the child support they need to adequately
