"The other woman lives in North Carolina" (his x wife) She won't stop calling him. ( He answers the calls) Where would I file (We live in Florida)

Florida does not have any alienation of affection suits, so you would have to sue her in North Carolina for this. In North Carolina the following elements would be needed to sustain a cause of action:

To succeed on an alienation claim, the plaintiff has to show that

(1) the marriage entailed love between the spouses in some degree;

(2) the spousal love was alienated and destroyed; and

(3) defendant’s malicious conduct contributed to or caused the loss of affection. It is not necessary to show that the defendant set out to destroy the marital relationship, but only that he or she intentionally engaged in acts which would foreseeably impact on the marriage.


You would have to review your case with a NC attorney to see if you can make out your case based on your particular events.
