Control tactics, such as using the legal system to repeatedly drag women through expensive litigation in the Family Court or launching a defamation lawsuit, or smear campaign, in a brazen attempt to silence or discredit their partner's words, and preserve their own reputation, is rife.

A narcissistic smear campaign is used to discredit another person by hijacking the narrative of a relationship after it has ended.
