Concord, NC asked in Divorce for North Carolina

Q: If my husband and I decide to try and work it out, can I still press Alienation of Affection charges on the mistress?

They work together, I have proof that she asked and knew about me and pursued him further, via witness testimony (other employees). I have witness testimony of them being together, and even the higher ups have said something to him because he was happily married.

A: You can but you need to make sure she has non-exempt assets that can be gotten otherwise even if you win the case (which even in the best of circumstances, the odds are never good) you will likely end up with a judgment that has about the same worth as used toilet paper.
