How to Divorce a Controlling Personality in San Diego

On Behalf of | Feb 4, 2022 | Divorce

Are you searching for strategies on how to divorce a controlling personality in San Diego?  You many be married to a narcissist, someone who is highly insecure, a spouse who suffers from borderline personality disorder or simply someone who is consistently dishonest and manipulative.  These personality types have one simple goal: manipulate the discussion, process and even you whenever and wherever possible to get what they want.  You need proven strategies to manage the process of your divorce and each step in the journey.

Perhaps one of the best strategies to divorce a controlling personality in San Diego is to keep your thoughts and plans to yourself and make sure you are organized and prepared before announcing your intentions regarding the divorce.  Once they are aware of your plans the manipulation, control and false assertions will begin (and perhaps never seem to end).  Prepare.  Organize all of the information you will need such as financial and credit statements, W2’s, tax returns and retirement account data.

This is why it is so important to work with the experienced and proven Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq.  What are you most concerned about?  What worries keep you up at night?  We work with you to identify specific goals and outcomes which are important to you and strategies to achieve them.  We identify important documentation and evidence which may be required to protect your interests.

This is especially true if you have children.  You will need to develop a plan to divorce a controlling personality in San Diego while protecting the best interests of your child(ren).  Controlling personalities can be very convincing and present arguments and half-truths which can make it seem like they hold all the cards while creating as much doubt and worry in your heart and mind as possible.  The Court will be interested in facts, not the opinions or postulations of your soon-to-be former spouse.

Perhaps our best counsel regarding how to divorce a controlling personality in San Diego is to never take advice or accept “information” or “proven facts” from a controlling personality (even if they are an attorney!).  You need your own trusted source of advice.  You need the confidence and comfort of a well-conceived strategy and the steps it will take to execute the plan.  You need to know each step in the process and how to prepare.

Controlling personalities rarely find a way to work things out and can attempt to make even mediation a challenging if not impossible experience.  You will need strong legal counsel to protect and advise you.  We will work to help you to manage the process while accomplishing your goals and objectives.

We invite you to read the strong reviews of former clients and recommendations of the legal industry, protect your own interests and contact us or call 760-389-3927 to schedule an appointment for a remote or socially distanced consultation with one of our experienced Certified Family Law Specialists.
