Parenting after a breakup is challenging for many

Though the division of money is the issue that gets the most attention, the one that goes straight to the heart is child custody. It affects the lives of mothers and fathers who are in the process of getting divorced, already divorced or never married. Of course, most of all, it affects the lives of children who love both of their parents and don't want to lose either of them.
