    Taking Narcissists To Court - Divorce 101 With Narcissistic Abuse/Domestic Violence/Divorce Attorney - Helen

    Taking Narcissists To Court - Divorce 101 With Narcissistic Abuse/Domestic Violence/Divorce Attorney - Helen

    Chad talks with Helen, a Domestic Violence/Divorce Attorney & Narcissist Abuse Survivor, about the steps abuse victims need to take when divorcing someone with a Narcissistic Personality or other High Conflict Personalities. Helen gives a thorough rundown about the role of an attorney and how the use of documentation is the most effective way to present your case. She also discusses how the legal system thinks when it comes to protection orders, divorce, and custody issues. Plus, Helen answers all of the listener questions that were sent in too. For anyone going through a divorce with someone with a personality disorder or will be soon, this is a must-listen episode. *This episode was originally aired on our Survivor Story podcast last year and it didn't get the attention I thought it deserved. I had many lawyers email me after hearing it, telling me what a an amazing job Helen did, so I'm reposting it this week on the Q&A podcast in the hopes that it reaches a new and wider audience.*

Great Podcast!

I learn so much from listening to this podcast! The style of the podcast allows us to hear a variety of experts that most of us probably wouldn’t have been exposed to. Thank you!

Wonderfully Done!

This podcast has been an eye opener for me. I am so grateful for the time and interest that Chad puts forth. Also for the many survivors willing to share their experiences. It’s really helped me see that I’m not alone in my painful dealings with my narc. So many times I felt I was either too sensitive, expecting too much, or perhaps just clueless to how awful I really was?? So many of these stories feel as if they are describing my life and the struggle to understand what happened and WHY I ALLOWED it? Thanks so much to you Chad and your friend Melissa too. I feel that you are really helping many many people. I find myself wishing I could meet other survivors because they are such great people. Please keep this coming and stay safe during this worldwide COVID-19 issue. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
