The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.


What do you need to prove in court to win an Alienation of Affection lawsuit? Even if a spouse never had sex with the person they were seeing does that matter. I mean don’t you just have to prove that the other person caused your marriage to fall apart?
