Question about criminal conversation

Dear lovegone:

First, I am sorry to hear about your pain and loss. Now, you may be elligible to file a claim for alienation of affection and criminal coversation. If you file and win, you may recover some financial damages from her, but that will not stop her from having a relationship with your husband.

If your husband cheated, that alone does not qualify you for alimony. If your husband made more money than you, and is a supporting spouse, then you may be entitled to alimony. Go and speak with an attorney in your area specifically about your situation. Best of luck.

My husband and I have recently separated. After the separation he confessed an affair with a woman who broke our home up five years ago (via letter which I kept). He states they started talking on the phone in January of 2004 when she came into the business he manages. He states they rented a hotel room in March of 2004 and had sexual intercourse at which time it is a possibility that he conceived a child with her (it is his or her husband’s). The pair are now romantically involved and talking about moving in together (her husband made her leave their home).

Up until January of 2004, our marriage was ok; I would receive text messages from him expressing his love for me, our sex life was average to above average, and we were making our marriage work. What can I do to get the message across that this woman can not keep wrecking peoples lives? I have heard about alienation of affection and criminal conversation but I don’t know if it’s worth the initiative. My husband and I have been together ten years, married for seven. Also, would this scenario qualify me for alimony? Thank you in advance for your response.
