Divorcing A Narcissist: The Legal Help You Need

A personality disorder like narcissism can create a lot of issues in a marriage. It is not always easy to predict how a narcissistic spouse will act when they are presented with divorce papers. Divorcing a narcissist can bring on unexpected challenges that will require careful navigation in court.

Divorcing a narcissistic spouse without legal representation may lead to many difficulties that can affect the final settlement and child custody. At Hecht & Associates, LLC, we have more than 20 years of experience helping those who are trying to leave difficult marriages. Our divorce lawyer is highly skilled in high-conflict cases and uses aggressive tactics to protect your interests when fighting for a divorce agreement instead of letting a judge make the final decision.

What To Know About Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Narcissism is a personality disorder that can cause someone to have an inflated sense of self-importance. This personality disorder is often the cause of extreme insecurity, which can lead to excessive need for attention, gaslighting, jealousy, lack of empathy, communication difficulties and superiority.

While a few of these traits are occasionally seen in many people, a narcissist will present these qualities constantly, which can severely affect those around them. In short, for you, it can feel like the world revolves around your narcissistic spouse.

The Difficulties Of Divorcing A Narcissist

Divorcing a narcissist is not easy. Your spouse may use underhanded tactics to change the narrative of the divorce, delay the process and play the victim. A narcissistic spouse may even weaponize children, friends and family to try to gain an advantage during property settlement negotiations or when discussing custody and support.

In our experience, people who do not seek legal representation early when divorcing a narcissistic spouse frequently regret their decisions.
