After enduring years of a narcissistic husband, you’ve finally decided to leave. You simply cannot take his controlling nature or the way he treats everyone like he is above them. Unfortunately, obtaining a San Francisco divorce from a narcissist is often difficult. You’ll need to protect yourself during this trying time.
Gather Your Financial Documents
- Once you begin considering divorce, you’ll need to gather all of the financial documents you can, including bank and income statements of both you and your spouse, mortgage documents, investment papers, and just about anything you can think of. Your husband will likely refuse to provide anything in an attempt to show that he is above all of this, so it is all up to you.
- Since narcissists lack empathy or compassion, you’ll likely have a difficult time trying to persuade him to give you and your children money to get by during the divorce. Therefore, you’ll need to come up with it on your own. Start saving once you decide it’s time to go your separate ways, or open a few credit cards in your name. Doing so will provide you with funds to support you and your family.
Find an Excellent Legal Team
- You’ll need the best of the best backing you in your divorce. Your husband will attempt to make this a drawn-out, knock-down fight, and he wants to win. You can’t choose an average, run-of-the-mill attorney to represent you. Rather, you’ll need someone who has been through these types of cases before and who is relentless.
