Burbank Family Law Attorneys

Board Certified Specialist in Family Law

Data released by the U.S. Census Bureau showed that over 8 percent of men and 9 percent of women in California had divorced in 2008. That is a staggering number and roughly half of the percentage of men and women who had married in the same year.

At Cutter & Lax Attorneys at Law, we know that handling a divorce or any other legal issue related to family law can not only be tough, but downright daunting. We want you to know that you don't have to face it alone. By working with a Burbank family law lawyer from our firm, we will do everything possible to make the process as smooth as possible.

Cases We Handle

Some of the different cases our firm can help with include:

  • Divorce: Splitting a family is anything but easy. Beyond the emotional trauma, the legalities can be both time-consuming and complex. For this reason, it is highly encouraged you consult with a divorce lawyer to help protect your best interests and guide you throughout the process.
  • Adoption: While a noble process, adoption can be complicated. If you have questions about the paperwork, aren't sure what your first step should be or are just looking for professional legal guidance, do not hesitate to contact our firm. From step-parent to international adoptions, we can help.
  • Alimony: The state of California has very precise guidelines and factors that are taken into consideration when determining spousal support agreements. If you are being asked to pay or if you are seeking spousal support, you've come to the right place. Call (818) 839-2533 to see how we can help you.
  • Child Custody: Seeking custody of your child(ren)? If so, it is important that you recognize that the court will operate on what is known as the "best interests of the children." At our firm, we are well-versed in all aspects of seeking custody and will fight to ensure you are given fair interaction with your children.
  • Paternity: Regardless of whether you are looking to establish or disestablish paternity, you should have a legal professional on your side to protect your best interests. These can be complicated matters which can branch out to affect the rest of your entire life - you need to fight to protect your best interests.
