A woman I had an affair with is getting a divorce. She told me I am going to be summoned for deposition to testify about the infidelity.
May I invoke my Fifth Amendment rights or will I have to answer these intimate questions?
I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Oklahoma divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.
Where I practice, adultery is still a criminal offense and therefore affords all of the constitutional rights of any criminal offense.
If adultery is a criminal offense in your state then you can claim the Fifth Amendment privilege. However, if it is not a criminal offense then no privilege exists.
Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with a divorce lawyer in your jurisdiction.
