Testimonial – Client, Tess B.

“From the moment that I filed for divorce and child custody, I had 100% confidence in Brian. Each step of the way he kept me informed and prepared. I found his knowledge and background with divorce and child custody to be more than comforting. He was prompt in all responses or concerns that I had as well. I will most definitely refer a friend to him for his services and I would hire him again in a heartbeat should that ever be necessary. Thanks Brian!" Read more

Family Court Services Preparation – A Service to Attorneys

Family Court Services (FCS) Preparation For Your Clients

As a family law attorney, you know that Family Code section 3170 mandates that when parties have a dispute regarding custody and visitation they are required to participate in a child custody recommending counseling session prior to a court hearing. These sessions routinely occur at Family Court Services (FCS).

As the only family law attorney in San Diego County who has worked at Family Court Services(FCS), I can attest to the importance of having your clients prepared for their Family Court Services mediation session. From first-hand knowledge, I can tell you that having a prepared client makes it easier on the child recommending counselor (mediator) when they interview the parties and when they write their recommendation to the court.

With more than eleven years of experience at Family Court Services, I mediated the most challenging child custody and visitation matters and crafted more than 4,000 child custody recommendations for Family Court judges.

Family Court Services Preparation is important. I will prepare your clients for their FCS session first by explaining the process to them and then I will role play an actual FCS session from start to finish. I will answer questions and provide your clients with suggestions to help make their FCS session more successful. I understand how stressful and difficult it can be to attend an FCS session and I will prepare your clients to help alleviate this stress.

If you are in need of Family Court Services Preparation in San Diego, contact the Law Offices of Brian A. Victor at 858-633-3529 for immediate assistance.

Opposing Counsel Testimonial:

“When it comes to mediation prep services, Brian is the best.  If you are involved in a custody/visitation dispute and have a mediation date before your court hearing, it is very important to be prepared for the mediation session.  If you haven’t been to mediation before, you have no idea how it works, what to do, or what to say.

I have sent numerous people to Brian in order to prepare for mediation and everyone has come back with glowing reviews, which is why I will continue to send people to him.

The bottom line is this:  Brian has years of experience as a former mediator and he knows exactly what goes on in family law mediation sessions.  That experience is invaluable if you are involved in a custody dispute.”

Jeff Mach, Attorney

“…When I learned Mr. Victor worked as an FCS counselor for 11 years, I began to use his services as an FCS coach for my clients. The results were incredible. In addition to his background as an FCS counselor, Mr. Victor had spent 7 years working for the Department of Children’s Services, giving him special knowledge in the area of dependency. Without hesitation, I would recommend Mr. Victor to anyone in need of a compassionate, intelligent and dedicated family law attorney.”
