Will the Court Believe Me?: Dealing with Your Narcissistic Ex

Dealing with a narcissistic ex in family court can be extremely stressful. At Sharp & Dye, we keenly understand the difficulty and anxiety our clients face during divorces, child custody cases, and other family court matters, especially when the opposing party has caused you excessive emotional pain over the years. We understand that you might fear the court won’t even believe you at all because the spin your ex puts on things is so vastly different from the trust of what you experience with him or her. In today’s blog post, we’re sharing our tips for navigating family law matters when you have a narcissistic ex.

  1. Remember your attorney can help you set the record straight.

At Sharp & Dye, we often work with clients who are fearful that they will be defenseless against their ex’s lies in court. We help you stand up for the truth so that the judge can better understand what’s really going on. If you feel fearful and overwhelmed, it’s important to keep in mind that you don’t have to face this alone. We’re here for you. 

  1. Florida has remedies to get your ex-spouse to pay when their bad habits have cost you.

When you’re dealing with a spouse or co-parent who has expensive habits like alcoholism, drug abuse, and gambling, it isn’t just emotionally difficult. It can also hold you back financially. Fortunately, Florida law has remedies. During your divorce process, this may be taken into consideration when the judge makes decisions about alimony and property division.   

  1. Take care of yourself.

To put it simply, your ex’s narcissistic behaviors and bad habits are a risk to your health. Stress is an emotional problem that, when extremely severe, can impact your physical wellbeing as well. It is important to us that our clients understand how important it is to take care of themselves in these stressful times. Take time to unwind and practice self care — whatever that means for you. 


When you work with the Sharp & Dye team, we focus on taking care of the legal side of your family law issues so that you can focus on dealing with the emotional side of what you are going through. We make sure you are well-represented in court so you can feel comfortable that you have the best chances of a positive outcome, where truth prevails and justice is served. If you would like to work with our team on your family law issue, we would love to hear from you. Please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
