It Does Not Take Two To Tango -- Dealing With A Spouse With A Personality Disorder -

Most people think that a "high-conflict divorce" necessarily involves two people who are angry and unreasonable. But that's not always the case. When one party to a divorce suffers from a borderline, narcissistic, or other type of personality disorder, he or she can pull the entire family into a "knock-down/drag-out" litigation.  A person with a personality disorder often lacks basic compassion and/or the willingness to compromise for the benefit of the children.  He or she may be driven by revenge or the desire to inflict emotional pain and suffering -- and appealing to this person's sense of reason and logic is of no avail.  This may make it difficult or impossible to negotiate a fair settlement, leaving no alternative but to go to trial.   If you find yourself in this situation, then you need a strong advocate, an attorney who will fight hard to protect your interests.
