San Fernando Valley Fathers' Rights Attorney
Divorce & Family Law Lawyer Serving Clients in Burbank, Encino and Westlake Village
At Cutter & Lax, we believe that a father shares a special relationship with his child or children. We believe this relationship should be protected and that fathers deserve to have their rights protected in family law matters. Unfortunately, we have seen far too often a family law matter or divorce addressed in such a way that a father's rights are violated or ignored. As experienced family law attorneys it is our goal to protect
fathers' rights throughout any of a number of legal situations, including
child custody disputes,
child support, divorce,
legal separation, and more.
At our law firm, the legal team has over 20 years of experience in the area of family law that can be applied to your case. We are admitted to practice law in all state and federal courts in the State of California, and have extensive experience in family law and divorce cases throughout Southern California. Our law firm has garnered the respect of our peers through advocating our clients' rights and finding favorable results in the end. At our law firm, we take a quite different approach to our clients' cases – we believe in personalization and friendly service. We will take the time to get to know our clients and find a hand-crafted solution that will work best for your specific situation. We understand that you may have trouble bringing such a personal case to a law firm, but we want to assure you that your case will be in good, reliable hands at Cutter & Lax. We have helped many fathers seek the rightful custody or support that they deserve, and we are ready to begin helping you as well.

Husbands and fathers have rights, too!
In the past, most family law and divorce court rulings went in the favor of the mother in terms of child custody, visitation and child support. Unless the mother was simply unfit to care for the child, custody would virtually be automatically granted to her. In more recent years, fathers' rights have become more broadly recognized throughout family law courts in the San Fernando Valley and the rest of California. However, it often still takes hard work and dedication to fully exercise these rights and ensure your special bond with your children is not damaged or completely severed.
A skilled fathers' rights attorney should recognize that a child will often be better off with a strong and loving relationship with his or her mother and father. Granting sole custody to the mother in a divorce or legal separation can affect a child's wellbeing, particularly when the mother attempts to limit or prevent visitation. She may move out of town or may seek a court judgment that makes it so you can't see your child or children as much as you would like to.
