The American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers surveyed its membership to determine what its members believed to be the biggest mistakes divorcing couples with children make. Here are the results, in order of frequency:

• Denigrating the other spouse

• Using the child as a messenger

• Interfering with visitation rights

• Sharing intimate details of the other spouse’s infidelity, behavior, etc.

• Failing to pay support/adequately supporting the children

• Immediately introducing the children to the parent’s new love interest

• Moving the child as far away as possible from the other parent

• Listening to the child’s conversations with the other parent

• Having the child read any of the legal pleadings

• Having the child request money from the other spouse
