Alienation of affection


#1

My friend was threatened with a filing of alienation of affection against her seven months ago as part of my separation. Now she is separated and her husband is threatening of filing against me. My friend was never filed with the A of A. So if she was initially threatened with a A of A filing, then can he reasonably file against me. If there was a filing, what kind of court and lawyer costs might one expect? Would he have to be the one proving it was my fault?

Her husband’s ability to file a complaint for alienation of affection is not dependent on whether a complaint was filed against your friend in your case. These are separate actions that are independent from one another. In order for her husband to succeed in his claim against you, he would have to satisfy all of the elements of Alienation of Affection.
