Hi, this is Dr. Mark; I'll be glad to help you with this issue.
I can imagine how frustrating and overwhelming this situation must be for you. Having a parent with NPD is emotionally difficult, to say the least. That the professionals recommended staying away is often the recommendation that is made.
And this is actually the key to my answer to you that you need to consider and think about. I wish I could tell you that protecting your child is going to be easy, but nothing is easy when trying to deal with a parent with NPD. You know that better than anyone.
The main strategy that people, in my experience, have had to follow is to try to find the best attorney they can, and if they can't afford an attorney, then they go to a women's defense fund or agency in their city and try to work with an attorney there. Because your mom will get her own expert witnesses to testify for her cause, so an attorney is the only recourse you have.
And try not to get too caught up in her web. I know that it's hard with your child in the middle, but you can only do what you can.
Okay, I wish you the very best!
