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
- 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.
