The single most crucial piece of advice I obtained from this book is to ensure that all of your legal pleadings focus on specific, factual descriptions of your borderline spouse's actual conduct. Words, gestures, actions, inactions. Don't try to convince the judge your spouse is a rage-filled maniac by saying "my spouse is a rage-filled maniac" - show the judge your spouse is a rage-filled maniac by detailing the exact things she (or he) has done or said to you. Let her (or his) conduct speak for itself. The best advice for anyone divorcing a personality-disordered spouse is to read this book, then read it again.
This book gives clear descriptions of the kinds of behaviors that people with borderline personality disorders (BPD) and narcisssistic personality disorders (NPD) engage in, including the head games they often play. Read this, and you may gain some confidence that it really isn't YOU who's crazy- it's your S.O., making you THINK that YOU'RE the crazy one! Once you realize that you are being manipulated, you will feel more comfortable getting help to make the necessary changes in your life.
Toward that end, this book also gives much-needed PRACTICAL ADVICE for proceeding with the legal process of separation and divorce. The book covers what kinds of documentation to collect, how much money you might need to sock away, how to select an attorney, how to communicate with that attorney, how to conduct yourself when dealing with family court, and how to deal with that crazy spouse who acts so completely normal in court but reverts to being a berserk harpy again when on the phone with you.
This book could potentially save you lots of money in legal fees, support payments, and more importantly, doctor bills from STRESS. If you are in a relationship with a person who might have BPD or NPD, DEFINITELY read this book!!!
