Can a judge take away custody if a parent becomes sick?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce on Friday, June 12, 2020. Family law judges have one responsibility when it comes to making decisions in child custody cases in St. Louis. Their job is to make determinations as to what’s in the best interest of the minor. A parent’s medical condition can affect whether or not they end up with custody of their kids. A judge won’t likely deprive a parent of custody simply because they’ve received a cancer diagnosis. They will probably want to know how well a parent can care for their child’s health, welfare and safety if they


Why dads may feel that winning custody is impossible

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in father’s rights on Thursday, May 28, 2020. If you ask most individuals, they assume that women have the upper hand when seeking custody of their kids. Many think that moms tend to win primary custody of their children and that dads just get awarded visitation or at most joint custody. While this may happen in some cases, dads are increasingly becoming the primary custodial parents of their kids. Fathers are entitled to the same parental rights, including petitioning for full or shared custody, just like moms. Missouri courts generally prefer parents to have shared custody of


Does a parent’s living accommodations affect child custody?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in family law on Friday, May 15, 2020. St. Louis family court judges prefer for parents to work out how to share custody of their kids among themselves. They take it upon themselves to decide such matters on their own if the parents can’t reach an agreement though. Missouri family law judges are expected to consider what’s in the best interest of the child when making such decisions. The type of living accommodations a parent has can greatly impact what type of custody decree that a judge enters. The age and gender of a child affect the type


There are many ways to split up hard-to-value assets in a divorce

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in family law on Friday, May 1, 2020. Going through a divorce can be very difficult. It can be even harder to do if you and your ex own hard-to-value assets. Divorcing spouses and their attorneys often have to ask a professional appraiser to step in and determine the value of their assets when they can’t agree on what they’re worth. It’s not always necessary for a divorcing couple to call in a professional appraiser to assign values to their assets. Family law attorneys or divorce mediators can broker agreements between spouses about what certain marital assets are


Your right to visitation and custody as an unmarried father

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in father’s rights on Sunday, April 12, 2020. Not all relationships work out, but sometimes they result in a child being born. Just because you’re not in the other parent’s life, that doesn’t mean you have to miss those important milestones as your child grows up. Studies show that children tend to be better adjusted when they have both parents in their lives. This is why you should make it a point to establish your paternity of your child. Virtually every biological parent has a legal right to custody and/or visitation with their child. A mom or


What are the requirements to file for divorce in Missouri?

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce on Friday, April 3, 2020. Most every couple starts their relationship with the goal of it lasting forever, however, sometimes things don’t work out that way. It’s when St. Louis spouses reach a point at which their marriage cannot be saved that Missouri law allows a married couple to pursue a divorce. Divorce laws vary by jurisdiction. Couples in most every state must be legally separated for a designated period before they can move forward in filing for divorce. At least one spouse must have been a resident of Missouri for at least 90
