How do you mediate divorce with a narcissist?

How do you mediate divorce with a narcissist?

There seems to be an increase in the number of divorcees accusing their spouses as being narcissistic, and it could be that the term is being used more widely because these days, it’s so easy to find a list on the internet of “How to spot if your spouse is a narcissist” – though many of the traits and ‘tell-tale signs” are not that far from behaviour most of us might demonstrate on a bad day! But perhaps the apparent rise in this style of behaviour is a reflection of our times, and the...

Trump’s War Speech Shows The Weakness Of Dispute On All Levels

Trump’s War Speech Shows The Weakness Of Dispute On All Levels

With Trump blasting out his rhetoric to the UN threatening to destroy North Korea and undermining, completely, existing peaceful agreements on reducing arms proliferation with Iran – deliberately crushing opportunities to mediate and find healthier solutions – the parallels with a nasty divorce were inescapable. But when you are dealing with a narcissistic opponent – as many divorcing couples are – how can peaceful solutions possibly work?     Look at it this...

To have and to hold – insurance for married couples

To have and to hold – insurance for married couples

To have and to hold Arranging insurance for married couples should arguably go hand in hand with saying “I do”.   Financial matters are perhaps not the first consideration when getting married. But it is vitally important to review current financial arrangements and establish new plans at the start of a significant new stage of life. Perhaps the first and most obvious thing to consider is wedding insurance, given that even a simple ceremony and reception will cost many thousands of pounds...

The Big Mistakes Men Make When Divorcing

What are the key classic errors men often make and how to avoid them Sussex-based family lawyer Laura Sherlock offers some guidance for men when divorcing: “I would say the most common mistake is often not obtaining advice at the earliest opportunity and often waiting until the process can be thrust upon them. I am aware that sometimes they might not want to be the bad guy and make the decision that it is the end of the relationship, rather waiting for the decision to be made for them. Or if...

Often referred to as “the dreaded form e” – there’s no need to panic.  Actually, it is not legally required that you fill it in, but if you have any assets at all to split, you will find most solicitors unhappy to assist you if you can’t list clearly what they are, along with what you need to support yourself and your family.  S0 it’s an exercise worth doing.

Why you need a mortgage expert sooner than you think when you’re getting divorced – by Carl Mountain

Why you need a mortgage expert sooner than you think when you’re getting divorced – by Carl Mountain

  “I’m going to my mother’s!” (and slamming the door) doesn’t let you off the hook if the marital home has a mortgage on it and you decide to get a divorce. If your name is on the mortgage, you are as liable as your spouse for the payments. So getting divorce financial advice early on is a good idea. What’s yours is his and what’s his, is yours – including debts and mortgages. And if the payments are not made, your credit history will be damaged.   So getting to a place of...

Divorce With Lawyers Who Talk To Each Other: The Collaborative Divorce Process

  According to the Mirror, lawyers estimate that the average cost of a UK divorce is – in real terms – £70,243 and rising – with the average person losing out on £4,686 of their salary, with an added £5,089 on finding alternative accommodation, £8,926 in legal fees and £51,543 in paying off debt and sharing assets.   Of course, if the divorce starts to get ‘out of hand’ – then legal fees can begin to soar.

Collaborative Lawyers and High Profile Divorce

Divorce Coaching and Better CoParenting

Divorce Coaching and Better CoParenting

My biggest inspiration has been my children. They have been the most important thing in my life so far. To me children are a gift, and with that gift comes a responsibility from the person who receives them, to make sure that your children are given the best opportunities in life, so that they grow into well-adjusted, well-functioning adults. My inspiration for working with couples as a relationship coach is that I know how traumatic divorce and separation can be. I just want to help other...
