Divorcing a spouse with Narcissistic Personality Disorder

FamilyFightOur client writes, After 30+ years of mental abuse, she finally feels safe enough to divorce her husband. She is the sole bread winner and he is convinced she is hiding money from him. His attorney claims he is unable to work and appears to be on a fishing expedition, looking for money that isn’t there. She is looking for a lawyer who can handle NPD and fair spousal support negotiations.

Our Answer:

By fishing expeditions, I trust you mean they are bludgeoning you with document production demands, interrogatories, and subpoenas. Many attorneys are famous for this. One way to deal with it may be to overwhelm them with a mountain of paper. The usual way to begin overcoming the ‘unable to work’ routine is to start with a motion (RFO) for an order that he go through a vocational assessment. You have to prove that he has the ability and opportunity to work. As to NPD, “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” you see a lot of it in Family Court. We have extensive experience with this and are able to help.
