My wife had an affair with this guy in the neighborhood across from ours, would there be any legal trouble by putting a note in each of his neighbors' mailboxes on his street letting them know what he did and what type of person lives in their neighborhood?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

We live on the border of NC & SC. He lived in NC but the acts happened in SC.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

I am very sorry to hear that. I would suspect he would file a slander/libel claim against you. Trust is a defense but defending even a baseless claim can be expensive.

Thank you for your quick response. I wish I knew of a legal way of having him wear the scarlet letter. As what happened just isn't fair. Any suggestions would be appreciated.I will be glad to give you a positive rating!
If you are going through with a divorce putting him on the stand after sending him q subpoena is an option.

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.
