Alienation of Affection


Dear plstam:

Greetings. Each award for alienation of affection is different, so there is no set or average percentage awarded. The same goes for costs of court.

Remember that an alienation of affection claim, if properly filed, cost thousands of dollars out of pocket to file and pursue. Due to the cost, many of these actions are not filed. Best of luck.

How much of the assets or percentage is awarded for alienation of affection? Approximately how much does it cost to go to court?
