Alienation of Affection


#1

there is a 3 year statute of limitations on alienation of affection in NC - according to the lawyers on this website - as long as you have not been in contact with him via phone, e-mail or in person.

How did she know where to look for you and get your phone number?

I can only guess she hired someone to find me. I don’t really know.

Did she stay with her husband after the affair? If she did, then she would not be able to take a suit against you because the court would consider that she reconciled with her husband and you in fact did not ruin their marriage. I would also look into harassment laws if she kept bothering you.

Dear bh234:

Greetings. The statute of limitations has expired if you have had no contact with this man in the last six years. Good luck.

Wonderful…thanks! What exactly can I do if she keeps calling me and leaving me messages? She was sending my husband lots of nasty letters which he threw away to keep from upsetting me (she wasn’t signing them but we knew who they were from). What can I do if she starts that up again? Thanks!

I wonder if you can get the Postal Inspectors involved??? Sending threats by mail…

Dear bh234:

Greetings. I cannot help you here - suggest that you contact the district attorney in the county where you live or consult a criminal attorney about your options. Good luck.

I had an affair with a man when I lived in NC 6 years ago but for the past 5 years I have lived in another state. His ex wife is now saying she is going to sue me for alienation of affection. How can I defend myself in NC when I don’t live there and I have small children so I wouldn’t be able to go up there. She hasn’t actually sent me papers yet, she just left me a nasty message saying that she is going to sue me. What can I do?? Thanks!
