Family will be there for you at the most difficult times no matter what.

In phrases referencing time, at would be the best choice. But in this example, times can refer to time or events.

You might use in if you mean events:

Family will be there for you in the most difficult situations no matter what.

However, in your original phrase, during would be a better preposition to use, since a time span is implied.

Family will be there for you during the most difficult times no matter what.
