Family law challenges take on many forms and couples who have children often face a number of legal issues. Not only does child support often become tricky, but some may disagree on custody matters. For example, a couple may not want to split custody in a certain manner, or someone may feel that the other parent of their child should not be allowed to have any custody whatsoever. For example, someone who has witnessed or been subjected to domestic violence at the hands of their partner may be very worried about the outcome of a custody battle.
