Relationship after seperation


#1

Dear Nascar:

You can be charged with adultery as a criminal offense. Also, if you have a sexual relationship with someone other than your spouse, even after the date of separation, it could affect your alimony claim. Good luck with the relationship!

what exactly would happen being charged with a criminal offense?

Dear Susieq:

The magistrate or district attorney would swear out a warrant for you, forcing you to show up in court and answer the charge. You could plead guilty and get a sentence or you could have a trial. Mind you that I have not heard of a Wake County court charging anyone with adultery, but the matter is still a crime in North Carolina. Best of Luck.
