The end of a union for a couple, whether it was formalized through a marriage or not, generally represents trying times for both parties, in particular if it was unexpected. The level of tension and emotion can reach a critical level when children, adultery, physical and/or psychological violence are involved. Depending upon the matrimonial regime applicable, various important questions will need to be addressed such as child custody, child support, alimony, the issue of debts, etc. Sometimes, parental alienation (where a parent wilfully attempts to draw away a child from the other) is part of the mix.
