Child support can be broad in nature

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Child Support on Friday, April 26, 2019. If you’re a parent in the Midwest, then you know that raising a child can be an expensive endeavor.

Legal help with the complexities of a high net-worth divorce

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce/Separation on Friday, April 19, 2019. Divorce is rarely easy, but divorces can be especially complex for people with a high net worth.
