Greetings. Yes, an alienation of affections and criminal conversation action may be brought against someone that does not reside in a state that has these claims, if they have minimal contacts with North Carolina that bring them under our jurisdiction. No, there is no criminal conversation case if there is no actual sex. No, there is not an alienation of affection case if there was no affection at the time of the alienation (other relationship). It is a very expensive matter to litigate and the difficulty depends on the facts of the case. Best of luck.
