Need Help Divorcing a Controlling Spouse?


During a recent phone consultation, I spoke with a woman in her late 50s who tearfully explained she had no control over her life. Her husband managed everything in her life. He controlled what she wore, ate, where she went, who her friends were and all the finances.

She further explained her husband held a high paying position in the finance industry and hid many of his assets. She also had no access to money and was not permitted to work. She had 2 children 18 and 16 and had been a stay-at-home mom.

It turned out her husband paid all the bills. She never saw the bills and she didn’t know anything about his earnings or finances. She received a small monthly amount for spending money.

As a psychologically-trained divorce attorney and mediator, I realized during the conversation that he was a controlling spouse and she had been forced to become a dependent spouse. She was going to need an attorney/mediator with a strong understanding of this type of spouse to get her the best possible outcome.

I assured her I would fight for her, and I am doing so. Right now we are using a member of my team of experts, a private investigator, to track down some of the hidden assets.

If you are in a marriage where you are being controlled and have lost your identity and voice, there is a way out. It’s time for you to take control of your life

Here are some signs you have a controlling spouse:

  1. You don’t have knowledge of financial information including income;
  1. You have separate bank accounts and savings;
  1. You are encouraged to stop working;
  1. You are discouraged from seeing your friends and family;
  1. You are the object of disparaging and threatening comments;
  1. You are ordered around;
  1. You are blamed for everything.
