Alienation of Affection Information


#1

Sounds like you have the basis for a claim for alienation of affection and/or criminal conversation. Whether it proves to be worthwhile depends, in large part, on the financial situation of the defendant. If the statute of limitations is going to run you should contact your lawyer and file a complaint before the time runs or you will forever lose your claim. Act fast.

I am not sure how “well off” this person is, but I do know that she has about 10 acres of land near Gainesville, FL. If I were to file and she did not have alot of money - would they request she sell the land and give me part of the money? Also, if I file a claim - what type of stuff in my past would they want to dig into. I have nothing to hide - I was faithful to my ex and I was a good wife - I just am not crazy about all my personal business being made public. Are these cases won very often? Do the courts take them seriously?

Thanks!!

Dear Carolinagirl:

The cases with merit are won. The courts take these matters seriously in North Carolina. If you believe that you have a case and you want us to review it for you, you may want to set up an office consultation to review the legitimacy of your claim. Best of luck.

I have read your information on Alienation of Affection. I found out my ex was having an affair and that the person he left me and my daughter for and is now living with knew he was a married man with a small child. He told her he was single and lied about his name and where he lived. Then he finally told her the truth and she chose to continue the affair with him. When I found out and confronted him, he did not deny the affair and chose to be with her. I do not blame her for the affair when she thought he was single, but when he told her he was married with a small child, she should have stepped aside and refused to see him. I blame her from this point on. Do I have grounds for an Alienation of Affection case? What are the chances of winning one of these cases and what information do I have to provide to the courts to prove his unfaithfulness? Is it worth the time, effort and money involved in these cases? They live in Florida and I still reside here in NC - will that be a problem?

Thanks for your advice - I need to decide what to do - my three year statute of limitations will be up in a few days and I need to get with my lawyer if it is worth the effort!!
