Technology in the 21st century sure makes tracking down cheaters a heck of a lot easier. How? Well, there are apps for all sorts of devices including cell phones and tablets that are supposed to help you to track down its location or whereabouts. While the true purpose of these apps is to help people to find stolen phones, tablets and other devices, many people have turned to using them as a method of surveillance.
It is possible to use apps like the one mentioned above to track whoever has that device. So, if your spouse is working late it is possible for you to check in on them to see if that is in fact what they are doing.
Never Take Surveillance Matters into your Own Hands
The only problem with taking surveillance into your own hands to prove that your spouse is cheating is that you can get into a lot of trouble with the law. While you might only be intending to prove that your spouse is cheating, many laws and regulations forbid a person from tracking and recording another individual. Not only that, in the heat of the moment you might also find that you act a little impulsively, something you might come to regret once the dust settles.
For example, a man in the United States used a tracking app on his son’s iPad to discover that his wife was cheating. The man was at home looking after his son while his wife was supposed to be out with friends. When he discovered the location of the iPad, he went over to the house where his wife really was and confronted her.
The man was able to film at least 35 seconds of video proof of his wife’s infidelity. Unfortunately, because he entered someone’s home without permission he faces a hefty 15 years in jail if proven guilty.
Hire a Professional. Hire a Private Investigator
Don’t let this happen to you! If you suspect that your spouse is cheating, you really need to leave the investigation up to a professional. It’s why so many people turn to a private investigator for help.
A licensed private investigator will have all the tools they need in order to conduct surveillance on a suspected cheating spouse. They will also know all of the laws and regulations within the province, state and city in which they conduct their investigation. If the man mentioned in the example above had hired a private investigator, he would not have rushed into the house in a moment of panic and heartbreak. The private investigator would have found all the proof he needed without breaking any laws.
Hiring a private investigator to conduct surveillance on a cheating spouse typically occurs when there is some evidence of infidelity. Most people just want proof that they aren’t going crazy, that what they suspect is actually true. A private investigator in Ontario, Canada or even the United States will conduct surveillance on the individual. They will conduct this surveillance by following the law so that neither they nor you get roped into a court case.
Private Investigator Surveillance on a Cheating Spouse
The first thing a private investigator will ask for to help them with their surveillance is any proof or suspicions that the individual has about their spouse. The private investigator will then build their surveillance around this information. For example, if the spouse is suddenly spending a lot of evenings at work, the private investigator will watch them in the evening. They will be able to tell for sure if the spouse is cheating by looking for their vehicle, and tailing them wherever they go.
Reporting is a major tool of a private investigator. In general, it takes around 1 week to find evidence of cheating. During this time, the private investigator records whatever the spouse does, taking pictures and recordings where possible (and legal). Remember, the last thing you want to have happen is that you get caught where you aren’t supposed to be. Even though your spouse is the one cheating, you’ll be the one to pay the price.
How to Handle Bad Surveillance News
A good private investigator is always aware of the sensitive nature of an infidelity case. However, it is their job to record evidence of whatever they see, no matter how bad it might seem.
It’s important to prepare yourself for bad news and to react calmly when the private investigator presents the facts. Remember: it’s better to know the truth than to continue living a lie. Based on what the private investigator finds, your spouse’s secret will be out in the open and you can decide how to move forward from there. The good news is if you hire a private investigator you won’t be held liable for obtaining the truth. You won’t need to go to court or even face jail time.
So, before you dive into the world of private investigation without thinking, be sure to call an actual licensed private investigator or private investigation company. These people are there to help you with your cheating spouse case in a way that ensures you remain protected.
