Most couples do not come to the decision of ending a marriage easily. Although divorce can be one way for many couples to party ways and start new beginnings, the process along the way can be fraught with difficult decisions, emotional battles, and life-changing outcomes. The issues involving young or minor children can be among the most difficult matters to resolve – and trying to resolve them on your own could result in serious consequences.
