My experience with Stange Law Firm was a very professional, caring and understanding experience. Mrs. Betsy Wirth represented me in my case. Mrs. Wirth returned all my calls the same day as well as my emails, I am very pleased with the time and effort she put in my case. I LOVED MY ATTORNEY!!

Could not have asked for a better law firm to handle my custody case. Betsy is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate and extremely efficient. She responds quickly and answered all my questions and walked me through the whole process. I would recommend this law firm to anyone.

Drew has been beyond helpful. I had an issue Friday night. Sent him an email and heard back on Halloween!
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
