Ask Your Own Australia Law Question

Good Afternoon,

unfortunately you cannot take them to court and sue them for adultery.

If the marriage is over, you can apply for a divorce provided you are separated for a period of 12 months.

But what they have done is not illegal, and there is no charges or action you can take against them for compensation.

I suggest if the woman is calling and harassing you and your husband, you can consider taking out an intervention order against her to stop her from contacting you and if it does, then she has committed a criminal offence.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
