To Janet Fritts concerning alienation of affection

Dear Alljams:

Well, we waited anxiously and the House passed the bill. We worried, bit our nails, and waited, but the Senate did not pass the bill. Therefore Alienation of Affections and Criminal Conversations are still alive in North Carolina.

That being said, we are one of the last states to maintain these actions. If anyone has one of these actions which they wish to file, I still recommend that they do so. When our legislature does act, they tend to do everything at once. Hope that helps and glad to be of service!

I read a post you wrote concerning alienation of affection / criminal conversation, dated 4/20/03. You had stated there may be a bill in the works concerning this. Any new information ? In my research, I’ve read about this, and even though it has nothing to do with my divorce, found it very interesting. Thanks for everything you folks do on this site.
