Divorce and personality disorders in Arizona do not make the divorce process easy. Dealing with a spouse who has a personality disorder will often result in him or her taking unreasonable positions and abusing the legal system to drive up the costs of the divorce. The question becomes whether your spouse has a personality disorder or is simply a mean person.

Mental health professionals rely upon the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders (“DSM”) to diagnose whether a person has a personality disorder. That resource provides that a personality disorder is a persistent, pervasive and inflexible pattern of experiences and behaviors that fall outside of societal norms. The DSM lists the following ten specific forms of personality disorders.

  • Paranoid Personality Disorder
  • Schizoid Personality Disorder
  • Schizotypal Personal Disorder
  • Antisocial Personality Disorder
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Histrionic Personality Disorder
  • Narcissist Personality Disorder
  • Avoidant Personality Disorder
  • Dependent Personality Disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder
  • Personality Change Due to Another Medical Condition
  • Other Specified Personality Disorder and Unspecified Personality Disorder
