North Carolina Alienation of Affection Attorneys
Alienation of Affection is a tort action, similar to a personal injury case, based on the willful and malicious interference with marriage relations by a third party. Alienation of Affection actions are often brought at the same time, or in conjunction with, Criminal Conversation actions as oftentimes the facts of the case include both the elements of alienation of affection and criminal conversation.
Are you the victim of alienation of affection by someone else?
If your spouse was having an intimate relationship with another person prior to your separation, or if you suspect someone convinced your spouse to unjustly leave your marriage, it is important that you contact an experienced lawyer and obtain sound legal advice regarding your rights and your options. Your attorney can advise you of the best course of action including filing a claim for alienation of affection, waiving your rights to sue the third party, or handling the matter out of Court through settlement. Before waiving your rights to sue for alienation of affection, it is very important that you understand your rights and options prior to waiving any such claims.
If you have evidence indicating these alienating actions occurred, ensure that you put that evidence in a safe place so that these items do not disappear before you have a chance to contact an lawyer and show them your evidence. In some cases it may also be necessary to hire a private investigator to obtain additional evidence or to find evidence that the Court deems “unbiased” since the evidence was obtained by a professional investigator. The attorneys at the McNeil Law Firm have good working relationships with many private investigators who are trained and have considerable experience in finding the evidence necessary to prove alienation of affection.
