Alienation of affection part 2


#1

(See my previous post on your first post about initiation and admissibility.)

Yes, phone records can be used and subpoenaed to show that unusual contact occurred between the parties in question. (Thank God, because it’s one of the ways I’m able to defend myself against a CC/AA accusation. There was virtually no phone contact between myself and the person I’m accused of having an affair with prior to their separation.)

Probably what would happen in your instance is that he would have to pay an attorney a sizeable retainer. That attorney would first send a threatening letter to try and force you into a settlement. Then there would be the request for your financials and other such information. Chances are that once he saw that you had no money to get, he would encourage his client to drop the case. However, if out of vindictiveness the client chose to go through and bear the full cost up front for getting a judgement, it could still go to court.

And, yes, as much as I don’t condone having an affair, it is pretty much a form of legalized slavery via extortion at this point.

All of this evidence would be considered in court. If the married person contacted you first then that would certainly be evidence that they were not in an otherwise happy marriage. Emails and phone records are admissible evidence. He will have to prove he had a happy marriage and if it had not been for your interference they would have continued to have a happy marriage.

What if the married person is the one that contacted me and initiated it the affair? She contacted me because the mariage was broken. Also are the emails that he has admissable in court since he got them off her personnel email account? He also has phone records.

Doesn’t he have to prove that the marriage wasn’t broke? Mya attorney advised me that alienation of affection is so hard to prove and costly. This guy thinks I have alot of money but all i live from payday to payday. Now he is holding her hostage saying he want go after me if she stays. That sounds like extortion to me!
