I was preparing for my upcoming divorce trial and went into stealth-mode.  I became a Private Investigator.

I ended up finding his online dating profiles on Fitness Singles and Match.com.

I’m not naive– I’m sure most people stretch the truth a little.  Lies by omission.  It reminds me of Real Estate agents who use photos from 20+ years ago.  I get it.

Stretching the truth and pretending to be a completely different person are two different ballgames. 

  • His income was listed at 100,001 to 150,000 (didn’t turn out to be a complete lie.  He only lied about it on court paperwork pertaining to child support).
  • Relationship Status: Never married.  (Really…?)
  • Education: Graduate Degree (No….that’s not true either).
  • Kids: No (How do you lie about having children?).

I don’t know why I continue to be shocked.  Nothing should surprise me anymore. 

One Mom’s Battle: Our mission at One Mom’s Battle is to increase awareness of Cluster B personality disorders (Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Antisocial Personality Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder) and their impact upon shared parenting and the Family Court System which includes Judges, CPS workers, Guardian ad Litems (GAL), Parenting Coordinators (PC), Custody Evaluators, therapists and attorneys. Education on Cluster B disorders will allow these professionals to truly act in the best interest of the children.

History of One Mom’s Battle: In 2009, One Mom’s Battle began with one mother, (Tina Swithin), navigating the choppy waters of a high-conflict divorce in the Family Court System. Since then, it has turned into a grassroots movement reaching the far corners of the Earth. Tina’s battle spanned from 2009 – 2014 during which time she acted as her own attorney. Ultimately, Tina was successful in protecting her daughters and her family has enjoyed complete peace since October 2014 when a Family Court commissioner called her ex-husband a “sociopath” and revoked his parenting time in a final custody order.

Tina Swithin: Divorcing a narcissist? Tina Swithin’s books are available online at Amazon (print, Kindle or audio format). Each year, Tina offers life-changing weekends of camaraderie and healing at the Lemonade Power Retreat.  Tina also offers one-on-one coaching services and a private, secure forum called, The Lemonade Club, for those enduring high-conflict custody battles.
