Attorney Brian Burkett is an experienced child custody attorney and offers a free consultation to member of his San Diego community who are struggling with a divorce and/or child custody dispute.

During a separation or divorce, the choices you make early on can greatly affect the interests and wellbeing of your children. In the State of California, the courts consider the best interests of the child when determining custody. When parents are unable to come to a custody agreement, the count will order that the parents attend Family Court Services (FCS) Mediation. During this mediation, the parents are encouraged by the FCS counselor to come to an agreement. If no agreement can be reached, then the counselor will make a recommendation. Although the court typically adopts the FCS recommendation, parents have right to a trial before the court makes any permanent child custody orders.

Attorney Brian Burkett has over 10 years of experience successfully representing clients involved in contested and agreed child custody cases. He understands that FCS mediation is a critical component to a successful child custody case and prepares every client thoroughly being attending mediation. Additionally, he goes to great lengths to help client settle their cases out side of the court room which saves his client both time, money, and emotional stress. Attorney Brian Burkett understands that a divorce is a stressful and emotionally trying process and works hard to minimize it strain on his clients.
