The Legal System is a Narcissist’s Playground 

Beating a narcissist in court can be a difficult and challenging task as narcissists often use manipulation and deceit to get their way. Narcissists will do anything to win, and courtrooms provide a desirable battleground to play their game. However, there are some strategies that can be used to effectively counter a narcissist’s tactics and help ensure a fair outcome in your Divorce or Child Custody case. 

  1. Gather Evidence: Narcissists may be adept at manipulating the truth, so it is important to have solid evidence to back up your claims. This can include documents, emails, text messages, videos, and witness testimony.
  2. Stay Calm: Narcissists often try to provoke a reaction from their opponents, but it is important to remain calm and composed throughout your case’s process. This will help to maintain your credibility and make it more difficult for the narcissist to undermine your case. 
  3. Hire a Good Lawyer: A good lawyer can help you navigate the legal system and provide valuable guidance on how to effectively maintain focus on your goals. A good lawyer can not only help you present your case in court, he or she can also guide you through settlement options that best achieve your goals. 
  4. Don’t Engage in Personal Attacks: Narcissists often try to make everything about themselves and their own self-importance. Narcissists love to win, and they will use every opportunity they can to put you down. It is important not to get drawn into this game and to focus on your own goals to achieve the best outcome in your case. 
  5. Be Prepared: Narcissists may try to surprise you with last-minute motions or new evidence. It is important to be prepared and to have a strategy in place to counter these tactics.
  6. Don’t Give Up: Narcissists may try to wear you down and make you give up, but it is important to stay focused and determined. 

Non-Legal Resources to Help you Fight a Narcissist.
