Alienation of Affection/Not NC Resident


#1

Dear confused7:

Greetings. If you have participated in an affair with a married person in NC, then NC prevails. I would speak with an attorney immediately if I were you. Thank you.

If a spouse who is working in another state has an affair in that state for over a year negate the alienation of affection since it did not actually take place in NC?

Dear Grace:

If the person who lives out of state called NC, received e-mails from NC or sent e-mails to an address in NC, etc., then they may still be subject to the claim in NC. That is the best I can tell you without knowing the entire situation. Thank you and good luck (p.s. sounds like you need to speak with an attorney - whatever you do, don’t ignore the lawsuit).

The state in which I reside does not have Alienation of Affection or Criminal Conversation Laws, and I am NOT a resident of NC. However, I am being sued for these in the state of NC (I was served while visiting relatives in NC over the holidays). Which laws prevail?
