Divorce tactics when one’s spouse is controlling

| Jun 27, 2013 | Divorce |

Going through a divorce can be a challenge, even in cases in which both parties agree that the marriage should end. When there is a high degree of contention and strife or controlling behavior between spouses, the process can become incredibly difficult. The following tips are offered to advise Texas spouses of the best way to navigate a difficult divorce.


When one party exhibits controlling behavior throughout the marriage, it can be expected that those tendencies are only going to escalate during a divorce. Spouses who are planning to leave a controlling relationship are well advised to carefully plan their course of action before actually filing. One savvy step involves gathering the documentation that will be needed to process the divorce, including financial information covering assets, income and debts. In many cases, a controlling spouse will attempt to limit their partner’s access to these documents once the divorce has been initiated.

Another way to prepare involves saving as much money as possible, and keeping those savings in a secure place that one’s partner cannot access. Try to gather enough money to cover one’s cost of living for the period of time it may take for the divorce to become final. This is also a good time to open a bank account in one’s own name, and to begin building a credit history.


For Texas spouses who are anticipating a difficult divorce, it is important to keep the matter in perspective. Divorce is a process that has a distinct beginning, middle and end. No matter how difficult the coming months may be, there is light at the end of the tunnel, in the form of a life created on one’s own terms.
