Can one still be sued for A of A?


#1

My friend’s STBX cheated on him prior to their separation and it can be proven back to Oct 2010 (she didn’t move out till April 2011). I was thinking AofA and CC have been banned in NC after Oct 2009?? Is this correct?

Yes, alienation of affection and criminal conversation are still valid claims in NC. You will need to prove that you had a happy marriage and that but for the acts of this third party, the marriage, and the affection in the marriage would have remained intact. To make filing such a lawsuit worthwhile, you should make sure that this third party is not judgment-proof, i.e. they need to have assets, income, that will make them worth suing. A family law attorney can handle your case.
