Divorcing spouse with BPD


The absolute divorce requires only a one year separation. The other issues (alimony and property) do not require proof of any particular conduct (although conduct is considered in alimony cases). See an attorney.

Good luck.

Are courts and judges open to compliants of divorce regarding BPD spouses? My husband is a diagnosed BPD. I can no longer deal with the outbursts and narcissistic attitudes. He is very manipulating and very good at twisting things around.He has to have total control of everything, (incl money). We have been married 23 years.
Do you have any legal advice re divorcing a BPD?
