The Law Office of J. Kevin Clark P.C. Offers Legal Counsel for Divorcing a Narcissist

Attorney Kevin Clark shares the characteristics of narcissistic partners and the value of standing up to them

Divorce is almost always stressful, but it can be even more difficult when one’s spouse has a narcissistic personality. A narcissistic spouse will try to create conflict and make the divorce as difficult as possible for the other party every step of the way. The team at the Law Office of J. Kevin Clark P.C. knows this all too well. To help a narcissist’s spouse in such challenging situations, the firm offers legal counsel that guides them to stand their ground and keep their property, child custody or support to which they are entitled.

According to Attorney Kevin Clark, founder of the law firm, in a divorce it is often challenging for the other party to stand their ground and fight for their rights, especially when they’re dealing with a narcissist, even if they have been married for years.

In many cases, spouses realize that cooperating and compromising can save time, money and stress during a divorce. However, narcissism makes this very difficult or even impossible.

Some common narcissistic traits include inflated self-importance and belief of superiority, excessive entitlement, and expecting recognition and admiration. They’re also accustomed to belittling people, expecting others to comply without question, and reacting with anger or vengeance when they do not get what they want. They also mask secret feelings of insecurity or shame and do not recognize the feelings or needs of others.

Narcissists believe they are always the victim, even when they may have caused most of the problems in the marriage themselves. This steady, unfounded manufactured feeling of victimhood, mixed with an inflated sense of self, results in extreme beliefs of entitlement. Because a narcissist believes they have done no wrong, they believe they are entitled to more of everything in a divorce, including money, property, or custody.

Narcissists lack empathy for others and often will not hesitate to belittle, accuse, or start unnecessary conflicts. When narcissists believe they are not getting everything they want in a divorce, they react with irrational anger and try to “get back” at their spouse through the divorce process.

Even though the conflict in a divorce with a narcissist is often unilateral, it can unnecessarily delay divorce proceedings and inflate costs by constantly going to Court. Narcissists can also try to be master manipulators and will try to use their schemes during the divorce process to bully a spouse to back down or give up. If you are facing this situation, you need an attorney who can see the situation from an outside perspective and who will stand up for your rights.

After the divorce, most people move on from divorce within a few years, but narcissists usually never let go. This scenario can make co-parenting and enforcing Court orders very difficult for years to come. If the narcissistic ex-spouse is refusing to comply with the Divorce Decree, the other party should not hesitate to contact the Law Office of J. Kevin Clark P.C. for help with enforcement or modification when needed.
