Do You Need Help Divorcing a Spouse With a Personality Disorder?


If you need help divorcing a spouse with a personality disorder, I am here to help.

Are you anxious, confused, living in fear, walking on egg shells and feeling lost in your marriage?

As a psychologically-trained divorce attorney, I can tell you there is probably a lot more going on than just poor communication. It might be that your spouse has a personality disorder.

In my over 35 years of practicing law and medicine as a divorce attorney and psychologically–trained mediator, while skillfully identifying personality and mood disorders affecting marriages, I have developed a comprehensive legal/psychological divorce process to advocate for spouses and give them the help they need to leave a marriage surrounded by mental illness.

There are several types of personality disorders:

  1. Obsessive-compulsive;
  2. Anti-social;
  3. Borderline;
  4. Paraniod;
  5. Narcisisstic, just to name a few.

A spouse with a personality disorder can make you feel:


Do you feel like you are losing your mind?

Have your been convinced by your spouse that you are the problem? You have failed? You are worthless?

2. Like You Are Living With Mr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

At home you are living with one version of your spouse, and outside, in front of family and friends, you are with another version of your spouse.

3. You Are Walking On Eggshells

You are constantly dodging your spouse’s hotspots. You eventually avoid them at all costs. You never know what version of your spouse will come walking through the door.

4. It’s Always Your Fault

If you ever receive an apology it is usually followed by a qualifier like “but you…” They are never wrong or to blame. It’s always your fault!

5. You’re Being Manipulated

The truth is constantly being twisted or distorted. You are being manipulated and controlled. You are verbally assaulted, and isolated from family and friends.

If you are living in a marriage where you are abused, manipulated, or controlled, there is a way out. Your spouse may say they want a happy, healthy marriage but their actions say otherwise.

This is not a marriage - you are being held hostage by a personality disorder. Getting out won’t be easy, but with the right divorce team and support, a better life is possible.

Acknowledging that a personality disorder is a third party in your marriage is the first step. The next step is to pick up your phone and call me and my team of experts.

I know this won’t be easy, but gaining your freedom and happiness will be worth it.
