Adultery - prosecute?


#1

You sound like you are looking for a reason to get money, at least he waited until you seperated before he got involved with someone-else so why can’t you move on with your life he is, this is the reason why the system needs an adjustment because of people like this.

Dear margie:

Greetings. You can call the district attorney in your office to try to have them prosecute an adultery case.

True, the affair must occur during the marriage to affect alimony.

You may have a claim for criminal conversation though. Thank you.

I am certain that my separated ex has and is committing adultery. However, my lawyer says that no DA would prosecute an adultery case. My understanding is that basically my ex can do anything or anyone he wants once he has moved out. I have to pin an affair/relationship on him pre-separation to get anything in terms of alimony. Does he just get away with adultery? My lawyer says I wouldn’t have any damages since my husband was already moved out before starting the relationship. Can I do anything? Help!
