The Dynamics of Family Life in Burbank, CA

As of 2011, Burbank's population totaled 104,092. The dynamic of family life in Burbank, California can be better understood by looking at the statistics of married, separated, and divorced couples in the area. As reported by Sperling's Best Places, 5.88% of the couples living in the 91523 zip code of Burbank identified their marital status as dissolved (divorced). Compared to the 10.62 percentage that reflects the total number of divorces in areas throughout the U.S., it would seem as if Burbank marriages are far more successful than those in the rest of the country; however, the total number of marriages in Burbank compared to the rest of the U.S. must also be reviewed before this determination can be made.

While 46.32% of the U.S. population is married, only 23.53% of the Burbank population has taken marriage vows. Therefore, although the percentage of divorced couples in Burbank is only half of what the total percentage is for the rest of the country, the same is true of the percentage of marriages. As such, it can be assumed that, on average, the number of divorces in Burbank is close to equivalent to the number reflected for the rest of the country. In essence, couples in Burbank struggle equally with their marriages as compared to other couples throughout the U.S.

A closer look at the number of separated couples in Burbank as compared to the rest of America shows similar results. The number of separated couples, however, is slightly less encouraging for residents of Burbank. Here, 5.88% of couples have reported themselves as separated, whereas only 4.97% of the rest of the country's married couples have opted for separation Along with their divorce counterparts, these numbers reflect the prevalence of marital issues in Burbank, and simultaneously reflect the need for strong family law representation in this area of the country.

Unique Representation for Cases of Military Divorce

One of the most complex areas within the practice of divorce and family law is that of military divorce. Members of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force, and Marines – as well as their spouses – are presented with a unique set of circumstances when the decision is made to divorce. This is because service members are faced with the typical stressors, dilemmas, and consternations as other families going through divorce, as well as the additional concerns that come from out-of-state and overseas deployments and life on the military base.

For the military members who choose The Law Offices of Cutter & Lax as their legal representation, the typical worries that are often expressed by spouses divorcing under such circumstances can quickly be assuaged. At our firm, services members and their spouses will be represented by an attorney whose past includes service as the Chief of Legal Assistance at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Additionally, Mr. Cutter (one of our firm's lead attorneys), is also a retired JAG officer whose former experience as an enlisted reservist puts our military clients at a significant advantage.
