Can you sue your husbands mistress for breaking up a family?

Baraboo, WI |

She knew the marriage was in trouble and used that to work her way into his life. If I'm not mistaken, I saw a program on TV of a true story where a mistress broke up a family, and the wife won the court case.

My friend lives in Illinois.

  1. Whether or not you can sue your husband's mistress depends on the laws of your state. In Texas, you can file such a claim. In Washington, you cannot. Talk to an attorney in your state as to whether this would be a valid claim.
