Divorcing a Narcissist

A narcissist is someone who is uncompromising, self-centered, and unable to empathize with others. When you divorce a narcissist, you face a set of unique challenges beyond even the normal obstacles that divorce presents. Common ground and compromise, court orders, the safety of your children, and financial and property division might all be issues that come up during a narcissist divorce. 

Is Your Husband or Wife a Narcissist? 

To determine if you’re divorcing a narcissist, consider the following characteristics. Is your spouse...

  • Self-centered, to the point of putting themselves above others?
  • Arrogant, thinking they always know best?
  • Unsympathetic and unable to empathize with others?
  • Constantly needing admiration or recognition?
  • Rude, uncompromising, or manipulative?

If so, you might be dealing with a narcissist spouse. Even one of those traits could make your spouse very hard to live with, but you don’t have to do it anymore. Divorce is always an option, even if your narcissist spouse is presenting challenges to your process.

How Can I Divorce My Narcissist Spouse?

Perhaps the better question is, how hard is divorcing a narcissist? The answer to that depends on the divorce lawyer you hire. While divorcing a narcissist brings with it its own set of challenges, the attorneys at Weis Law Group can guide you through this process and give you a fresh start on your life. Our skilled divorce attorneys can help you:

  • Enforce court orders. Many times, narcissist spouses tend to think the law doesn’t apply to them. We’ll work for you in court to ensure they follow the rules and keep your children safe.
  • Communicate and compromise. Sometimes, it’s difficult to even get a hold of your narcissist spouse, much less communicate and find compromise when going through divorce. Our attorneys are sensitive to your needs and will work toward your best-case resolution, finding cooperation where possible or helping you draft motions to help move your divorce along. 
  • Keep your children safe. The manipulative or self-centered behaviors that your narcissist ex exhibits impact your children, often without your spouse realizing it. We work with you to keep their issues confined to the meeting room or courtroom rather than in front of your children. 

By working closely with you and strategizing based on our experience, Weis Law Group can help you keep moving forward in your narcissist divorce.
