Greetings. First, there is not a need (generally) to file “separation papers” in NC to be separate. You are separated legally on the date you stop living together.
You can speak with the district attorney in your county about filing adultery charges against your husband if you want to.
You may want to research criminal conversation and alienation of affection.
Adultery can also affect alimony. Thank you.
