11 Critical Things You Must Do Before Divorcing A Narcissist

divorcing a narcissist

Even without children, divorcing a narcissistic husband or wife is anything but simple, amicable, and low-stress. 

Add children, and the narcissist has another powerful weapon at their disposal.

And you can count on them to make the divorce and its aftermath as painful as possible—for you. 

So, what can you do to protect yourself (and any children you have) and get the best possible outcome? 

How to Divorce a Narcissist 

As veterans of this nightmare can tell you, the only thing harder than being married to a narcissist is divorcing one.

The narcissist will do everything in their power to win. And part of that win is making sure you deeply and eternally regret divorcing them. 

That said, before we dive into a more detailed list of actions to take, let’s outline the primary strategies for divorcing a narcissist

  • Gather your posse (i.e., your support network)
  • Get a divorce lawyer —because mediation and narcissists don’t mix;
  • Get clear on what you want and what it will cost you to go after it; 
  • Save and document everything (receipts, recorded conversations, etc.);
  • Give yourself something to look forward to that’s well worth the fight. 

Make a detailed plan for navigating all the stages of divorcing a narcissist. The list further down will be one of your best resources for this. Your lawyer will be another. 

Take advantage of all the help you can find. You can bet the narcissist will do the same.
