My question involves alienation of affection law for the State of: North Carolina.
I dated a guy after he separated from his wife back in March 2009 - He had been in a miserable marriage for years , and she actually left him a note to * get out * and at that point , he left.
Everyone in his family, work , etc was aware of the existing problems in the marriage for years, and I was not a factor in him leaving - Once his son asked him why He and His Mom didn't just divorce since all they did was fight. If sued, would this be an adequate defense ?
We moved in together , and now that the wife is filing for divorce , her lawyer wants the name , age and relationship of whom he lives with. The lawyer requested that information in the first set of interrogatories regarding finances.
His wife knows my information as his children visit us weekly . This makes me nervous since, I am at a loss why the lawyer would want my information other than perhaps a lawsuit.
Can I be sued ? Does this New / Amended law protect people like myself that got together with someone after separation but before the date of Oct 1st 2009 ?
With Criminal Conversation , are there any defenses ? I understand its a liability tort, but, are there any circumstances where a viable defense can be used?
Thank you !
