What are the most common mistakes during the divorce process?

One of the most important mistakes that I think people make is failing to keep in mind the big picture and the strategy that you and your attorney have come up with for your divorce case. The entire divorce process can often be long, and both emotionally and financially draining.

Trying to keep your focus on the big picture allows you to remain cost-effective in your approach to your divorce and also helps to ensure that you do not get caught up in the pettiness of the divorce process. It helps you pick your battles wisely to achieve the primary objectives that you and your attorney have identified as the goal of your outcome of your divorce.
