Telling a High Conflict Spouse That You Want a Divorce

One of the hardest decisions when divorcing a high-conflict spouse is how and when to tell that person that you want a divorce. How will the person react? Will I be in danger? Will my life become a worse hell?

In this episode, Megan and Bill discuss this extremely relevant and important topic, starting with a question from a listener. They will discuss:

  • What should you do if your partner doesn’t know yet that you want a divorce? 
  • How should you tell that person? 
  • How should you prepare?
  • What should you say? Where should you say it?
  • Should you have someone with me?
  • Is it okay to stay at home after delivering the news?
  • What to be aware of going forward.
  • Should the kids be told in advance? Or when do I tell them?
  • Should the kid’s school be notified?
