Affairs And Divorce: Protecting Your Rights

North Carolina is one of the few states in the union that allows a person to file lawsuits for Alienation of Affection and Criminal Conversation. This means a lawsuit may be filed against the boyfriend or girlfriend for essentially destroying the marriage.

In some situations, these lawsuits are valid claims of emotional damage. However, in many others, they are used as leverage to gain advantage in a divorce.

At the Knox Law Center, our family law attorneys have a thorough understanding of Alienation of Affection laws and can explain the role they may have in your divorce proceeding. Contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers to discuss the potential liability.

Difference Between Alienation of Affection and Criminal Conversation

Someone may file a lawsuit for Alienation of Affection against his or her spouse’s boyfriend/girlfriend for destroying the marriage. The scorned spouse must prove that a loving marital relationship existed and that it was destroyed by the boyfriend/girlfriend’s actions.

To file a successful Criminal Conversation lawsuit, the spouse filing the claim must prove that there was a sexual relationship during the couple’s marriage.

Exceptional Legal Representation & True Professional, Genuine Individual

I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.

The most amazing lawyer, a true gem & winner

Allen is the best lawyer I've ever met! His character is genuine, and there is a warmth about him that makes you feel so comfortable. If you ever get into a situation with DWI, and feel truly remorseful for what happened, HIRE him for the BEST chance possible. I previously spent 6000$ on an attorney who just didn't feel like they really gave me the personal care that I needed. They were only in it for the money. After hearing raving reviews about Allen, I fired my lawyer and took a leap of faith with Allen. Even though I had to pay two separate times and could not get a refund for the previous lawyer, IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! He won my case with dignity, respect, and care and I am forever thankful to him for this.

I was falsely accused of a terrible crime that would have ruined my future. During the trial Allen was very prepared, but in addition when the false "victim" testified to some unexpected stuff. Allen was able to come up with a way on the fly to prove the witness was lying. At just the right time he jumped on her in cross-examination, and I was found not guilty! I am so glad I chose Allen as my lawyer. I highly recommend Allen Brotherton as a great lawyer.

I hired Allen Brotherton as my DWI attorney and it was not a mistake.

I hired Allen Brotherton as my DWI attorney and it was not a mistake. I can honestly say he is the best. I got arrested a year ago for a DWI and i hired Allen Brotherton to represent me in court and he did that to the fullest he could...My case got thrown out and i dont have a DWI on my record...i know every person is different , but i can say that he will work for you the best that he can. He treated me like i was the only client he had. I recommend him to everyone who needs a attorney for a DWI or a DUI and lives in Mecklenburg county.
