Stange Law Firm, PC is dedicated to the practice of family law. We handle only practice divorce and family law. We represent clients in all types of divorces, including: Uncontested Divorce: Uncontested divorces happen when both spouses both want to be divorced and when they agree on all the decisions that divorcing couples often have to make. In an uncontested divorce, parties have to agree on issues of child custody and visitation, child support, division of property and debt, as well as attorneys fees. Contested Divorce: Sometimes, one spouse wants a divorce, while the other wants to stay married. Additionally, even when both parties want a divorce, the parties can often fight over the terms of their divorces on issues like child custody and visitation, spousal support, child support or property division. In such situations, the couples often go before the court to hear a final decision on the issues they were not able to negotiate themselves. Collaborative Divorce: We represent clients seeking creative solutions to their divorce matter through collaborative law. Mediated Divorce: We have mediators who can help you mediate your divorce. At Stange Law Firm, PC, clients can schedule an initial consultation.
