  • Identifying assets: Being thorough when identifying and valuing marital assets may also be integral to staving off potentially costly mistakes and preparing to address your options.
  • Hidden assets: Another example of a common error could involve failing to address the possible presence of hidden assets, as similar issues can have a significant impact on the outcome of a divorce.
