Understanding Alienation of Affection
Raleigh Family Law Attorney Advocating for You
North Carolina is one of the few states that allows one party to sue another because of alienation of affection. Alienation of affection is an action brought by a deserted spouse against a third party who is allegedly responsible for the failure of the marriage. The defendant in an alienation of affection lawsuit is usually an adulterous spouse’s lover. Alienation of affection laws allow a husband or wife to sue a third party for damages as the result of an emotional or physical affair with their spouse during the course of the marriage.
Three things must be proven in order for an alienation of affection suit to win at court:
- The plaintiff and his/her spouse were happily married, with genuine love and affection
- The love and affection from one partner was alienated and destroyed.
- The wrongful and malicious acts of the defendant were responsible for the alienation of affection.
