Going through a divorce is one of the most destructive, heart breaking, and earth shattering processes that an individual can go through in his of her life. It is a method of betrayal and deceit that takes the sanctity of marriage and shatters it into a million pieces. In the process homes are destroyed, children are emotionally damaged, and two people that once loved each other cannot stand one another. More than half of the marriages that take place in The United States today end in divorce. Ending a marriage caused by infidelity, difference if feelings, finances, etc. is very common. However, what is not so common is terminating a marriage due to having a partner with mental illness. The courts of today are being bombarded with high conflict divorces that are initiated by those who suffer from border line personality disorder, bipolar disorder, narcissism, and other personality disorders on the DSM IV. Although those in the mental health field are familiar with these types of individuals, the courts are not equipped to handle these people; and the system finds itself being abused and mishandled by them. This book is an excellent guide for those that find themselves in a high conflict divorce with a partner that is suffering from a mental illness. Struggling through a divorce is tough enough, but surviving a divorce with a person that is unstable in frightening. This book will save time and money on how to protect a person in the court room, in mediation, with psychologists, and with family services. It is the divorce bible of today.

Protect Yourself from Manipulation, False Accusations, and Abuse
Divorce is difficult under the best of circumstances. When your spouse has borderline personality disorder (BPD), narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), or is manipulative, divorcing can be especially complicated. While people with these tendencies may initially appear convincing and even charming to lawyers and judges, you know better—many of these “persuasive blamers” leverage false accusations, attempt to manipulate others, launch verbal and physical attacks, and do everything they can to get their way.
Splitting is your legal and psychological guide to safely navigating a high-conflict divorce from an unpredictable spouse. Written by Bill Eddy, a family lawyer, therapist, and divorce mediator, and Randi Kreger, coauthor of the BPD classic Stop Walking on Eggshells, this book includes all of the critical information you need to work through the process of divorce in an emotionally balanced, productive way.
