Divorcing a narcissist

An overblown sense of self-importance, a constant craving for admiration and a lack of empathy for others are just some of the traits of narcissism. So, as you can imagine, divorcing a narcissist brings its own very special difficulties.

Our specialist family lawyers are experienced in helping those divorcing a narcissist. We always tailor our negotiating stance to the needs and personalities presented in each divorce case. This is particularly important if you are faced with the prospect of a narcissistic spouse.

Conciliatory and collaborative approaches, which can be used successful in certain situations, simply feed the narcissist's desire to project their personality or to argue trivial points to the point of exhaustion. A firm negotiating style is required together with a willingness to use injunctions and other means to achieve progress and a sensible outcome.
