Greetings. I can only imagine how upset and hurt that you are. I would be devastated that my husband had an affair, lied about, wasted our assets, mistreated me, and continues to mistreat my son. That being said, I would tell you that you need more information, such as some e-mails, cards, letters, or phone bills to assist with your alientation of affection claim.
Alienation of affections is a costly claim, which is usually not worth the funds which you would spend to pursue it.
I tell all my clients that first, I don’t like to place children in the courtroom as witnesses. I do not believe that the judges like to see children in their courtroom. Second, I also my clients that if they have to call their children as witnesses they have already lost - by involving their children. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but I believe this is the truth.
Finally, I would tell you not to pursue the alienation of affections claim in this matter, but to focus on your son and rebuilding your life.
