Narcissist divorce

When you’re married to a narcissist, you may be wondering which way to turn. Naturally, you’re aware of the impact their behaviour has on you and your family.

Of course, every narcissist is different and finding a resolution is not always easy. But as family law solicitors with a particular specialism in cases involving narcissists, we have tried and tested strategies to deal with them efficiently and get you the future you deserve.

What are the traits of a narcissist?

The following is a non-exhaustive list of many of the traits we see in a narcissist divorce:

  • Coercive control;
  • Lack remorse, compassion, or empathy;
  • Poor self-esteem often manifesting itself through arrogance;
  • Preoccupation with outward appearances: i.e. status, wealth, and success over other virtues such as morals and integrity;
  • Difficulty in regulating their emotions normally, often resulting in aggressive impulses;
  • Vain and self-righteous, and often disproportionately self-centered;
  • Very sensitive to criticism of themselves;
  • Yet they show intolerance for others’ imperfections.

Whilst these traits can make a narcissist very successful in the outside world or in their career, they can be a nightmare to deal with – both to live with and to get a divorce from. It is vital that your solicitor is used to handling such people.
