    There is no longer a valid cause of action in California regarding alienation of affection.

    The person the wife needs to be suing is her husband. For divorce.

      Agree, there are only a very few states that still allow alienation of affection lawsuits & Ca. is not one.

        Now I'm being told she is going to sue for personal destruction, that the mistress caused personal destruction to her financially and emotionally.

          If she does "try" suing, it doesn't mean she will automatically win.

            I'm a little confused. Are you trying to protect the mistress? Something's wrong with this world.

            Anyone can sue for anything. Whether it succeeds takes a bundle of cash and a lot of stress out of you. It helps a lot if you're 'innocent' of the wrongdoings claimed. And unless the mistress can show that she had no idea (and I mean NO IDEA, not perfect evidence) that the guy was married, she's going to have some real fun with this. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

              Realistically the scorned wife would have to prove that the mistress acted deliberately and with malice - the mistress wouldn't have to prove a darned thing


              (That's if there was a legit cause of action)

              (which there isn't, in CA)

                Who are you in the relationship and how does it affect you?
                Are you the wife? Get a divorce.
                Are you the mistress? Where were you when I was married?
