Divorcing a Narcissist

Going through a divorce is an emotionally difficult process. If you are dealing with a soon-to-be ex-spouse who is a narcissist, or has narcissistic personality traits, the process can become even more complex due to the manipulation techniques they may use. The challenges faced when you are in the process of divorcing a narcissist can be many, which is why it is important that you have an attorney on your side who understands how grave the situation is and is familiar with the tactics narcissists frequently employ.

A narcissist will try to continue the same pattern of psychological and emotional abuse during the divorce process that they did during the marriage. A narcissist is incapable of feeling empathy toward others and believes that they are always “right.” The narcissist’s willingness to go to any lengths to “win” can unfortunately make any attempt to mediate or negotiate the divorce process very difficult. Some of the tactics that narcissists may resort to during the divorce process include but may not be limited to making false statements, hiding income and assets, making false allegations of abuse, refusing to provide discovery documents, and other forms of bullying and intimidation.

If you are facing divorce, and your ex is a narcissist or has narcissistic personality traits, you should speak with a matrimonial attorney as soon as possible who can advise you of your rights and develop a strategy with you. It is important to speak with an attorney who understands the difficult nature of dealing with and divorcing a narcissist.
