The most common marital torts are Alienation of Affection and Criminal Conversation. If you believe your spouse has been unfaithful and you believe the paramour caused your marriage to fail, you may have a “third party claim” against that person. In the case of Alienation of Affection, you must prove yours was a happy marriage that was destroyed by the paramour and that his or her interference with your marriage was malicious. In the case of Criminal Conversation, you must prove that the paramour had sexual intercourse with your spouse during the course of your marriage. This type of litigation can be quite challenging and, therefore, you should seek the assistance of counsel. Call the Law Offices of Ryan B. Addison to schedule a consult.
