Union County Criminal Conversation Claims Attorneys
North Carolina is one of the few states that allows a husband or a wife to sue their spouse's extra-marital partner for adultery. These are major lawsuits that could involve hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. If you need to pursue or defend against a lawsuit for alienation of affection or criminal conversation, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side every step of the way.

We know how to handle these unique and challenging cases. Often these cases come up in relation to a divorce, and we have the strength to handle both cases simultaneously.
Criminal Conversation Lawsuits
These lawsuits involve one spouse suing the other spouse's extra-marital paramour for having sex with the other spouse. Investigation is often required for these cases, and we will rely on private investigators and other specialists. We also understand the important role that Facebook can have as a source of evidence. We can pursue or defend against these claims.
Alienation of Affection Lawsuits
These lawsuits are more subtle than criminal conversation lawsuits. In these, one spouse sues the other spouse's extra-marital paramour not for simply having sex with the other spouse, but for coming between their happiness and alienating the offending spouse's affection. Like criminal conversation lawsuits, investigation is required. These cases often hinge on proving that the marriage was not irreparably broken prior to the paramour arriving on the scene. We can pursue or defend against these claims.
