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.


My husband and I were together quite happily for 15 years until I found out he was having an affair with a very close mutual friend. It is clear that she pursued him as much as he pursued her, all the while hiding their relationship from me in our daily conversations (and preiodically taunting my ignorance). I am wondering what you can tell me about something called “alienation of affection”.

Thank you for providing this service.
