Marital Torts

A tort is a wrong, other than a contractual wrong, for which the law provides a remedy. A marital tort is a tort between spouses, whether prior to, or following, a divorce. Because an injustice is no less intolerable for occurring between spouses, the law provides a remedy for such wrongs. Examples of marital torts include:

  • Defamation
  • Economic duress
  • Forgery
  • Fraudulent conveyance
  • Fraudulent use or possession of identifying information
  • Intentional inflection of emotional distress
  • Interception of communications
  • Interference with child custody
  • Interference with existing or prospective contracts
  • Intrusion on seclusion
  • Invasion of privacy
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Public disclosure of private facts
  • Usurpation of community opportunity
