Obsessive-compulsive disorder, often referred to as OCD, is a personality disorder where one suffers from preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and mental and interpersonal control. This preoccupation is at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency. It is important to know that this disorder could affect your family law case and we are here to help.
The characteristics and attributes associated with OCD, or perhaps a misunderstanding of certain behaviors, may cause a strain in familial relationships. It may hamper the flexibility and compromise needed in a marriage or it may make raising children more difficult. If OCD has played a role in your marriage or in the relationships with your children, it is important that you work with a family law attorney that understand this disorder and also understand the best ways to deal with it in the context of your case.
A divorce, dissolution, or custody case where a party suffers from OCD can present major issues if the disorder is not properly recognized. The attorneys at Edward F. Whipps & Associates have over 30 years of experience in dealing with cases where a personality disorder such as obsessive-compulsive personality disorder is present. You can count on our attorneys to offer sound counsel that takes this factor into consideration in your case.
