Schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder that includes symptoms of delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech (frequent derailment or incoherence), and grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior. Often, these symptoms interfere with a person’s ability to function at work, create interpersonal problems, and prevent self-care.
Other common types of this disorder include paranoid schizophrenia (when one or more delusions or frequent auditory hallucinations are present), disorganized schizophrenia (when there is prominent disorganized speech, disorganized behavior or a flat or inappropriate affect), and catatonic schizophrenic.
The symptoms and behaviors associated with all types of schizophrenia can be difficult to manage in a marriage and are especially troublesome when it comes to parenting children. If schizophrenia is present in your situation, you deserve an attorney who understands the need to evaluate how this disorder can affect your divorce, property division, support, or child custody matter. You deserve an attorney who has excellent relationships with mental health professionals, who has experience in obtaining psychological evaluations by experts and who knows how to present evidence to the court in a compelling manner.
