I recommend filing a divorce action. You should speak with an attorney immediately about your specific case.
There is not enough information. Is it your intent to permanently separate, i.e. get a divorce? Not sure if what you are calling alienation of affection constitutes proper grounds in Virginia. If there is any doubt have you considered counseling, or were you planning to pursue that with your spouse?
Please contact a reputable family law attorney in your area. That would be invaluable. Most will do a free initial phone consultation. Good luck!

There are so many different bases to get divorce in Virginia, and unfortunately the information you have provided here is insufficient to even begin to attempt to answer your question. No, alienation of affection does not constitute a grounds for divorce in Virginia, but if you are simply unsatisfied with your current marital circumstances, you could see what your options would be for an uncontested divorce.
