My husband had an "emotional affair" with a woman at work

My husband had an "emotional affair" with a woman at work after 23 yrs of marriage. Our children are older 22 yrs and 17 yrs. If you read the texts they read much more sexual. He accidentally sent an email message meant for her to my son away at college which in turn, he now is in intensive therapy for having to break the news to me, a week before his college graduation. I had to plead with my son to allow his father to go. I have two questions one since my husband and I are trying to work things out and I have been chronically ill with a rare disease for five years, currently on the mend,however my husband told this women extremely personal details about our family...about them and they are furious. I don't blame them I am too. My son wants to know if we can have a gag order put on her, whether I stay with my husband or not. The other thing my children want is her to be subpoenaed the mediators office where both my husband and her have a written apologies to them read out loud and given to them as well as a copy given to the mediator. Sadly my husband,who who basically walked on water to my children, I keep telling them to forgive him. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? I keep trying to remind them that he is still their father, the man who was always their coach in sports, always took us on nice trips, however, we had extenuating circumstances with me being ill. They feel it's no excuse in our vows it says in sickness and in health and even with therapy they are both angry and my son especially is saying divorce him and collect a check and my daughter teary eyed agrees, saying we will take care if you Mom.. it's not their job. They need to make their own lives. So again,we are in Long Island NY..can We do what they want in hopes that they can confront this women and be done with it...or is it an impossible feat? Thank you Denise

I am recently divorced. My wife cheated on me with another

I am recently divorced. My wife cheated on me with another man. I have several witnesses that have seen their 'carrying on' over the course of several years. Do I have any recourse in suing the boyfriend for damages in Tennessee, since the law doesn't allow suing for alienation of affection in Tennessee? She received a sizable portion of my 401K and my pension from the finalization of the divorce. Since she is the one that cheated, I feel at least one of them should pay for my pain and anguish. If I can't go after her, can I sue him with any certainty of garnering damages. He also cheated on his wife to be with her. They (his wife) were divorced in 2013.

My wife left my home in early spring of 2004 and established

My wife left my home in early spring of 2004 and established separate residence until sometime between early fall of 2006 and early spring of 2007. She moved without a forwarding address. I last saw her in late summer of 2006 and last spoke to her by phone in the late spring or early summer of 2007 at which time she did not reveal her residence. At this time, I do not know her whereabouts, whether or not she is still in town or in state. We have not been together for over 12 years now.Is it necessary that I utilize the services of an attorney to file for a divorce? Can I go the the county courts and file on my own behalf to attain a uncontested divorce? If necessary, I have proof of several counts of adultery, abandonment, alienation of affection, fraud, and irreconcilable differences on her part.

In Washington State Alienation of Affection has been done away

In Washington State Alienation of Affection has been done away with, but I am wondering if a parent can sue a woman who is incompetent and crazy --literally-- for keeping a family member from seeing and talking to other family members. He is afraid of her for she is abusive as well as having mental problems, being alcoholic and a druggie and gambler. Her family is encouraging him to keep her so she will be off of the streets, yet she prefer the streets. Do or can I find an attorney to help me?
