Can you explain to me exactly what the wording in red means.

The following text is believed to be the exact statutory language concerning new limitations on criminal conversation in North Carolina.

No act of the defendant shall give rise to a cause of action for alienation of affection or criminal conversation after the date of separation of the claimant and the claimant’s spouse. [color=#FF0000]An action for alienation of affection or criminal conversation shall not be commenced more than one year from the last act of the defendant giving rise to the cause of action. [/color]The date of separation shall be interpreted according to Chapter 50 of the General Statutes. A person may commence a cause of action for alienation of affection or criminal conversation against a natural person only."

It means an action is barred if it is filed more than one year from the last act giving rise to the claim.

I left the house 14 months ago and we have stayed completely separated for the past 14 months with virtually no contact. Does this mean there can not be a claim filed for alienation of affection or criminal conversation?

The statute of limitations is 3 years, not one.
