Thank you
I ask because where the activities took place would be a potential for jurisdiction.

NJ law does not allow an "alienation of affection" lawsuit. There are only a handful of states in the US that do permit this. NJ is not one. So if she lives in NJ and the adultery took place there? You can not sue her

This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that you can sue her, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!

Please let me know if you have further questions; if so I will do my best to answer them. If not please hit the accept button, its the only way I get credit for my work.
