Yes, this is all provable and happened well before I even knew there was a problem and we separated. For approx. 5 years. My ex even exposed me to several diseases during my 2 battles w cancer and treatment bc of his many affairs and long term relationship w this particular woman.
What paper work, motions, etc. do I file? Once the paperwork is filed here in NC, do I just then serve her w/ papers via sheriff?
I have proof and my children & his work assoc. as witnesses.
I have never done a complaint, summons or cover sheet before, and I have done a lot in my case, including an Appeal that is in progress and so far done so well opposing atty is complimenting me and asking who is helping me.
I will look online also for examples of a complaint.
What does a summons and cover letter entail?
And I think I can do the complaint now that I have found one online from another state case.
I just started to fill out the Summons and Cover Sheet. No problem on coversheet
Summons - type of pleading and also claim for relief, do I check other and put in alienation of affection for pleading? what for the claim?
I understand that I can name other Defendants also, i.e. people who assisted or knew this was going on etc. I know for sure 2 other people. The form allows for the primary defendant (paramour) and 1 other defendant to be named. How do I include the 3rd?
Also, to confirm, I would then send all 3 of the defendants the summons, coversheet and complaint once it's filed, correct?
Would all 3 have to reply to the complaint or only the primary defendant, or defendant #1.
this is the complaint sample that I have been looking at, bc it is so closely related to my senario. I plan to use a lot of the wording on here, but they mention John Doe and Jane Doe as defendants. That is why I asked.
follow up on the summons-
ALIAS AND PLURIES SUMMONS
and does this go to the district court or superior court?
I'm somewhat now confused. I usually file everything with the court getting a time stamp on it once it has been registered and then send it to the party.
What exactly do I file with the court and in what order or can I file everything at one time?
Then I send copies of it all to the Defendant, certified mail, correct?
How and when do I get a case # ?
Thanks Lucy and good morning!
Excellent. The case # XXXXX XXXXX at the time of filing of the complaint and summons.
Ready to go then!
Your an angel. Thanks!
