Taking Legal Action for Alienation of Affection

It is difficult enough when you learn that your spouse has cheated on you and divorce seems inevitable. In some states, however, the injured party can seek legal action against the cheating spouse, seeking damages for "alienation of affection."

If you have been wronged before, you may have heard of "heart balm torts," or lawsuits seeking damages for adultery. In essence, you are charging your spouse with the intentional damage to your relationship by having relations with another man/woman. You can also sue your spouse for "criminal conversation," which is a similar charge that is linked to adultery.

When you want to prove that alienation of affection has occurred in your marriage, you need to prove several things. Since many of these items are not tangible, seeking this kind of lawsuit can be difficult, although not impossible. You must show that there was once love in the marriage, and that the adulterous situation destroyed that love completely.

If alienation of affection is a concern of yours, contact our firm to receive help from a Raleigh family lawyer.

These guys worked hard for me....
The attorneys at Hopper Law Firm PLLC are professional & personable, putting me at ease right away over an uncomfortable matter. I've met with Kevin & Brad over the course of my case; both are very down-to-earth, compassionate, & do an excellent job of explaining things in layman terms. It took a while as I understand these things do, but in the end, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a settlement greater than I had expected. These guys worked hard for me. Thank you!
