What does the court learn from a psychological evaluation?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child custody on Thursday, September 29, 2016. In determining the best interests of your child during a custody battle in Missouri, the judge may decide that a psychological evaluation is necessary. According to the American Psychological Association, there are certain goals that the psychologist should attempt to accomplish during this meeting with your child. You and your former spouse may have very different parenting styles, and the psychologist will evaluate how these specifically affect your child’s needs. This is not meant to be a general assessment of you and the other


4 events that don’t automatically end child support

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child support on Thursday, September 22, 2016. Parents who are obligated to pay child support don’t necessarily look forward to making these payments every month. However, they do so knowing that their financial contribution is essential in protecting the well-being of their child, and they should know that failure to keep up with payments could have very serious legal consequences. With all this in mind, parents often look forward to the day when they can finally stop making these payments. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen when people think it should happen.


Think divorcing in your 20s is easy? Think again

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in divorce on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. There are many things that seem easier for people of a certain age.

Some people think it’s easy; others think it is the result of a careless, immature decision to marry too young. The truth, however, is that divorce in your 20s, or


New law in Missouri aimed at improving shared parenting

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child custody on Friday, September 9, 2016. For years now, there have been studies and surveys showing that children often benefit when they have frequent, consistent contact with two parents. These numbers have sparked many states to adopt new laws that aim at leveling the playing field when it comes to establishing child custody and shared parenting. Today, Missouri is among those states. Recently, a new law was passed that made important changes to custody and visitation guidelines. Broadly speaking, the changes stem from some specific language that was altered in


How social media use could jeopardize your divorce

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in divorce on Tuesday, August 30, 2016. Social media is a part of our daily lives. This preoccupation with social media may seem pretty harmless, but it could be causing more problems than you think, especially if you are in a relationship. As articles like this one on the Huffington Post point out, social media can hurt relationships in a number of ways, from making it easier to cheat to creating a false sense of reality. However, social media use can also hurt people who are getting out of relationships.

Is it possible to modify my child support order?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child support on Wednesday, August 24, 2016. When you are packing your child up to go back to school in the coming weeks, you probably aren’t going to give them the same clothes, the same supplies and the same books you gave them a few years ago. This wouldn’t work because things have changed and your child needs things that fit their needs better. This is how you might also want to look at your child support order.
