Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony recently announced their separation, ending their seven-year-long marriage.

The couple has two children together, three-year-old twins - Max and Emme - and J.Lo has reportedly asked for the full custody of both the kids.

Divorce Attorneys believe that it is going to be a difficult battle, if the matter goes to the court.

"They are always with their mom. Jennifer lights up around her kids. She's incredible, balancing work and being a good mom," a source told Us Weekly.

J. Lo's recent announcement to end the marriage with husband Marc came following her claims that he was not treating her right.

"It's not that I didn't love myself before. Sometimes we don't realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself - if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me," the singer-actor had told September issue of America's Vanity Fair.
