Defending against criminal conversation and alienation of affections actions can be embarrassing, not to mention costly to paramours, and they can damage a cheating spouse’s chances of resolving a pending divorce case on favorable terms.Tread carefully when romancing a “separated” spouse.
If the spouse is successful in her actions against you, you are the one that has to pay up, not the husband.
Of course, if the roles are reversed and a wife cheats on her husband, the jilted husband can sue his wife’s paramour.
Here is what you know: This is the relationship he has with his present wife.
If he dates you, he is the kind of guy who would get married, have a kid, be in an unofficial divorce, stay in the house with the kid and wife, and date another girl. And that is before considering if he is planning on telling his wife and son, or planning on asking you to hide your relationship for his benefit (or for his son, or for his wife, however he might state it).
In North Carolina, criminal conversation and alienation of affections actions—nicknamed heart-balm claims—are often filed along with or during litigation of a pending divorce case.
