What to Do When Divorcing a NarcissistBy Moskowitz Law Group, LLC |
Divorcing someone is a complex process that relies on how well the two parties agree with each other on the terms of their divorce, such as child custody, parenting time schedules, spousal support and alimony, and asset division. Divorcing spouses who are arrogant or uncooperative when determining these matters can be very difficult to handle.
A narcissist is someone who places blame on others for their own mistakes, prioritizes self-importance, and has other manipulative and self-centered tendencies. Undergoing the divorce process with a narcissist can be hard, but there are certain steps you can take to overcome these challenges. If your ex-spouse’s narcissism is causing issues in your divorce proceedings, reach out to a New Jersey divorce attorney.
Documented Information Could Alleviate a Narcissist’s Impact
The actions of a narcissist can make it difficult to prove your ownership of the assets in your marriage, making it crucial for you to have all relevant information and documents readily accessible. A narcissist may fight for an unreasonable settlement. This is why it is very important to gather evidence early, before the narcissist tries to reject your attempt of obtaining a fair distribution or spread false information.
These documents can include financial records, child-related information, and more. This evidence could help you prove ownership of your assets and help in settlement situations. Keeping these pieces of evidence safe may also be a key factor in achieving a desirable divorce settlement. A narcissist may attempt to not only gather evidence to support their false story, but make sure that you have as little as possible.
Life after Divorcing Your Narcissistic Spouse
A divorce with a narcissist can be mentally exhausting. It may be important for someone who has gotten divorced from a narcissist to seek help after their marriage is over, either through friends and family or a professional. Reaching out to new friends and getting involved in clubs and organizations can rehabilitate your mental health, as could seeking a therapist.
All divorcing spouses have different goals, and if your former partner has displayed narcissistic tendencies in the past, it is important to take any necessary measures to ensure that you are not treated unfairly during the divorce proceedings.
