  • No you cannot sue the woman and I doubt you can get any settlement from the wreck before you were married. You have no grounds to sue the other woman on. She might not have even known about you.

  • Why would you sue her?? You can divorce him and go for spousal and child support....

  • I don't know about sueing her..........alienation of affection, maybe? But if you are still married any settlement he receives is marital assets, I believe, to which you might be entitled half. You really should ask a lawyer though. If you can not afford a lawyer Google your state and the words "bar association". Search the state site for pro bono (free) legal advice.

  • Why would you sue her? Your husband is at fault.

  • You can only sue her if your state has "allienation of affection" laws in place.. Very few states, less than 10 I believe, have such laws on the books. In regards to his settlement.


    If you divorce, and you live in a community property state, you could be entitled to part of his settlement.  If you are not in a community property state, which there is less than 12 of those, it would be up to a judge if you received any of the settlement or not.

  • While I think it's completely stupid to do such a thing- there are some states that will allow you to sue someone for "theft of affection".

    Just saying.

    I think your life will be happier, though, if you let those two be miserable together and you move on to bigger and better!
