Divorce Lawyer in Granada Hills

Legal Advocates Acting on Your Behalf

Any couple that has made the decision to legally end their marriage will immensely benefit from the assistance of an attorney. As legal processes, divorce, separation and annulment are most soundly executed under the direction and guidance of a professional in the field. At The Law Offices of Cutter & Lax, we have spent the past two decades (and more) proving this fact time and again. No matter how amicable the terms of your marriage or impending divorce might be, there is no way to predict the potential conflicts that could arise as the terms of the marriage's dissolution are ultimately hashed out.

Divorcing spouses who each enlist the support of a legal representative during the course of their divorce usually fare significantly better than those who attempt to complete the process without professional assistance. Deciding upon sensitive issues such as child custody, spousal support, and property division can be emotionally trying, which is why the advice of an attorney is so critical at this time. Knowing that you have a legal professional on your side who is advocating on your behalf could significantly ease the process of dissolving your marriage, especially if the divorce is one of contest in which hostility and / or arguments are heavily involved.

Why Cutter & Lax?

At The Law Offices of Cutter & Lax, residents of the San Fernando Valley are provided with high-quality legal representation that cannot be compared to any other law firm in the area. Navigating through the course of the divorce process can be difficult, if not complex, especially when a legal representative is not involved. Rather than risking the custodial rights to your children, or the financial rights to your earnings, it is wise to consult with an attorney who can advise you on the best way to address these types of concerns, which will unconditionally need to be resolved before a divorce can be completed.

Under the guidance of a Granada Hills divorce attorney at our office, you will benefit from the experience of a legal team that has been serving the community for more than 30 years. Here, our experience cannot be outweighed, as it has taught us how to address the concerns of divorcing couples in the area with as much effectiveness as possible. From issues of move-away cases to issues of domestic violence and other concerns that arise in the practice of family law, we have what it takes to help you reach the solution for which you are looking. Helping you through a divorce or family law matter is our mission, and we are unwilling to settle for unsatisfactory results.

Taking a Closer Look at the Neighborhood of Granada Hills

In a neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley with more than 53,000 people, the average household size in Granada Hills—according to reports listed in the LA Times—is about 2.9 people. While these numbers are on par with the rest of the LA County's reported statistics, the number of married men and women in the Granada Hills area is among the highest in the county. Approximately 60% of the area's population is married; 30-30% is single and have never been married; and another 6-10% is divorced.

At the time of these reports, more than 1,200 families living in Granada Hills were headed by single parents. Whether by divorce, separation, or out-of-wedlock pregnancies, the hundreds of single parents who are currently trying to raise one or more children on their own could greatly benefit from the professional advice of an attorney at our office. From child custody and support to alimony, and even legal modifications we are here to assist the single-parent families living in Granada Hills. Utilizing the experience and knowledge of a member of our legal team can significantly enhance your chances of obtaining the financial means you need in order to support a family on your own.

Looking even more closely at the population breakdown for Granada Hills, we can see that more than 4,000 veterans are living among residents in this area. That's more than 10%. This is worth noting because divorcing service members of the military are often faced with additional challenges that extend above and beyond those confronted by public citizens. Active service members, reservists, and even veterans can all benefit from the knowledge of a family law attorney whose own experience includes time spent serving our country. One of our lead practitioners, Mr. Cutter, is the former Chief of Legal Assistance at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. He is also a retired JAG. This experience has proven to be both insightful and useful in many of the military divorce cases that our firm has taken on since its inception; and given the military presence in Granada Hills, it could be of great advantage to families of service members who currently live in the area.
