Did A Spouse’s Actions Lead To Divorce?
North Carolina is one of the few states in the country that still allows for a civil action as it pertains to the reasons for a divorce. If one spouse abandoned the other, had an extramarital affair (whether physical or emotional) or otherwise was unfaithful to you during the marriage, it may be cause for legal action.
These fact-based cases must be well-documented and evidence must be gathered in order to proficiently pursue the case. At Miller & Audino, LLP, our Greenville lawyers have more than 50 years of experience in alienation of affection and criminal conversation cases, helping both the individuals who have been hurt by infidelity and the accused.
Alienation of affection: This type of basis for a claim involves proof of an affair that was started while your marriage was happy, with real love and feelings between spouses still existing. That status was alienated by the willful acts of another individual interfering.
Criminal conversation: When criminal conversation is alleged, it is the basis for a claim that aims to prove that there was physical, sexual contact between a spouse and a third party during the course of a legal and binding marriage, resulting in the end of the marriage.
