Do I have an AOA case?


#1

If the relationship with the third party existed before the date of separation and you and your wife had an otherwise happy relationship; and your relationship would have continued to be happy if it wasn’t for this third party, you probably have a case for alienation of affection. If you file a lawsuit for alienation of affection you can subpoena his phone records.

Is an attorney necessary to file for alienation of affection? What evidence is required? How do you sue if they live out of state?


#3

Would there be a claim of loss of consortium?

I don’t understand your question, alawyer.

If the third party lives out of state and no conduct occurred within the state you may have a problem with jurisdiction. You can file a claim without an attorney, but you would b e held to all the same standards that an attorney would. You would need evidence that a relationship existed between your spouse and this third party and that the relationship was the reason you and your spouse no longer have a happy marriage.

I am looking for some advice on my case. My wife left me 4/14/07. I suspected, but could not confirm an affair until 6/4/07. Confirmed with video from a private investigator. I had written letters to both the other man and my wifes boss informing them what I thought was going on. I sent both letters certified mail. I had caught her talking to the other man on the phone before the separation date. I have a suspicion that they could have possibly been together out of state in February 07’. Can I/ Should I have phone records subpeoned? The other man new she was married. They continue to see each other according to my 7 year old son. My attorney has informed me that his case load is to busy to take on this case. I have not spoken with him yet. But now I am worried that he doesn’t think I have a case. He put in his letter that I have until 4/13/08 to file complaint against the other man. I thought I had three years. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, “I think I need a new attorney”
