That's impossible to predict. It depends on a number of factor, including how much proof the plaintiff has and the attitudes of the jury. This type of lawsuit is not very commona and only 4 states allow it.

Who can you sue for alienation of affection?

Alienation of affection is a suit against your spouse's lover saying that this person broke up your marriage by attracting your spouse away from it. Most states have abolished this claim completely, and in those where it is still valid, it is very difficult to win.

No. Only a few states still recognize alienation of affection.

These are also sometimes called home wrecker lawsuits. Even in the few states that still allow such a claim, a victory is rare.

Can I sue my husband's mistress in Pennsylvania?

The "mistress" need only claim that he said he was leaving you - which he probably did say - and she is free and clear of any wrong doing. No citizen of the United States is required to verify a person's marital status before dating them. You do have a contract with your husband, a marriage contract. You may sue him for divorce, and even sue him in general. Alienation of Affection was abolished by statute in Pennsylvania. See related link for a state list.

Who declared the US Civil War first?

Neither declared war. The South was able to claim that it didn't want a war. It was just defending the (notional) borders of the Confederacy. Lincoln could not declare war without recognising the Confederacy as a sovereign nation. So the North was just defending its territory too. That is why there was no peace treaty at the end, only an armistice. And it's why some Southerners claim that the Civil War hasn't ended yet.

Why do people get punished for self defense?

People who get in trouble for defending themselves do so because they either are not able to prove their case in court, or because they used more force than necessary in defending themselves. In a case of self defense you must be able to adequately articulate everything that led up to the altercation in detail, you must be able to prove that you were defending yourself and not the one who started the altercation, you must be able to convince the judge or jury that you had good reason to use the amount of force used, and it helps if you have witnesses who can collaborate your account of things. Under certain circumstances you can claim self defense even if you started the altercation. If you started a fight and then tried to disengage, but the other person would not stop and escalates the level of force then you may be able to claim self defense.

Can I sue the woman my husband had an affair with for alienation of affection in the state of New Mexico?

I am not an attorney. But I do know you can sue anyone for anything. The question is "will that claim be taken seriously." The answer is probably not. You cannot sue two consenting adults for having an affair. They willingly participated in this affair and he alienated you not the woman. If you no longer want to be married, divorce your spouse. Finally, as painful as this is, many people seek counseling and get past affairs. the pain you feel is real and deep. So, if you decide to stay, don't try to suck it up and get over it. Seek professional help through a psychologist or life coach. If your husband wants the relationship, he will gladly participate. dr.sis
