As a child or young adult, everyone looks forward to the fulfillment that comes from a life partnership that includes raising children and spoiling grandchildren.
And is anything more heartbreaking and distressful than the breaking of a family through divorce?

- What other financial issues must be addressed?
- How will child custody be resolved?
