Woodland Hills is a district within the city of Los Angeles. Located in the southwestern part of the San Fernando Valley, the district is encompassed by West Hills, Winnetka, Canoga Park, Malibu, and Topanga. With a population of approximately 70,000, the area's population growth has grown sense the reports that were issued by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2000, at which time there were 67,006 residents living in the area.

The district of Woodland Hills is locally governed by the Woodland Hills Warner Center Neighborhood council, which acts as the advisory body to the larger city of Los Angeles. Under its jurisdiction are residents in the areas of Woodland Hills and Warner Center. Professional government officials, however, are not the ones who are responsible for cases of divorce, separation, and other matters of family law in the area of Woodland Hills. Therefore, it is important to seek the representation of an attorney at our firm, where our practice is specially tailored to residents of this area.

Do the terms of your divorce still work for you?

The agreements that are made at the time that a divorce is finalized are meant to reflect the needs and living conditions of each spouse at that particular time. Before a marriage can be officially dissolved, key decisions regarding the spousal support, child custody, visitation rights, property division and more must be made. In some cases, this can be a tedious process, especially when the divorcing couple is unable to agree upon these issues on their own. Fortunately, a spouse that has chosen to work with an attorney at The Law Offices of Cutter & Lax can more easily settle into the terms and conditions of their divorce agreement under the knowledge that we have the skills needed to modify this agreement in the future if need be.

Modifications to a divorce agreement are sometimes essential, because the circumstances of one or both ex-spouses can dramatically change from the conditions that affected the original decisions what were made. For example, one spouse's job loss could prohibit them from continuing the spousal support that they had since been providing. Similarly, another spouse's promotion could afford them the luxury of no longer needing the alimony payments they had since been receiving. Conditions of this nature call for spousal support modifications, which an attorney at our office can help facilitate. There are several types of modifications, and the grounds for modification vary from case to case. Depending on circumstances that are personal to your unique case, you may require a child support modification, or even a visitation modification. We can review your case and help determine what would best suit your needs.
