In trying to understand if your spouse is cheating one of the best tools you have is your knowledge of their behaviors.Â In hiring a private investigator the key items are the â€śwhen, where, and whoâ€ť.Â A private investigator is not a psychic and can not tell you the proper time to go out and find that key piece of information that can get you the proof you are in need of.
The â€śWhenâ€ť â€“ Identifying a time to send an investigator out is second to none in importance.Â We have found that keeping detailed notes of times and dates that it is hard to get a hold of your partner that would indicate something may be going on.
The â€śWhereâ€ť â€“ Trying to figure out where to start an investigation may be just as troublesome as the time to begin.Â If you believe that your partner is being untruthful about their behaviors they may also be untruthful about their whereabouts.Â It is best to locate the specific places that they â€śhave to beâ€ť in order to guarantee the investigator locating them at this location.
The â€śWhoâ€ť â€“ It is our policy at ASG to avoid doing surveillance on third parties but it helps if you have an idea of who the â€śotherâ€ť person may be.Â This will give the investigator extra ammunition to gather pertinent information for you while they are in the field.
Although it is an emotional time for you to be contacting a private investigator it is important to take a step back and look objectively at the situation.Â We, at ASG, do not wish to go out on a whim and risk the chance of being unsuccessful in meeting your goals.Â Feel free to contact our office at 888-677-9700 to discuss the many options in your specific case and our investigators will be able to work through these key factors with you.

Caution should always be heeded when you are tempted to do a bit of investigating on your own.Â The last thing anyone would want to happen is to find yourself in a situation where you break the law in an attempt to find out if your significant other is cheating on you.Â The following excerpt was taken from a news source in Michigan in which the prosecutorâ€™s office is taking a pro-active approach to making sure individuals are aware of the legality of gaining access to a spouseâ€™s email.
â€śA man could find himself in prison after snooping into his wife’s email account.
Thirty-three-year-old Leon Walker of Rochester Hills said he thought his now ex-wife was having an affair so he broke into her Gmail account.
Walker said Ciara Walker’s e-mails showed that she was indeed having a relationship with one of her ex-husbands.
Ciara Walker filed for divorce, which was granted earlier this month.
The Oakland County Prosecutor has charged Walker with felony computer misuse. A charge typically handed out to prosecute identity theft and stealing trade secrets.â€ť

â€ť If your status is ’separated’ or ‘going through a divorce’ you might want to stay off Facebook.
Social networking sites are causing a sharp increase in divorce and anything you say on your Facebook page or Myspace page can be held against you in court.
Facebook is an incredible resource for finding classmates, co-workers or making new friends. It’s also a way to rekindle old flames. For a lot of couples, that’s landed them in divorce court and given jilted spouses evidence of their partner’s adultery.â€ť

When looking for additional ways to gather information to support your thoughts that your partner may be unfaithful it is important that you are aware of the laws governing what can and can not be done legally.
â€śA Texas court has ruled that a husband accused of monitoring his wife’s computer through a keystroke logger did not violate federal wiretapping laws.
Larry Bagley was sued in June by his wife Rhea Bagley, who accused him of surreptitiously placing audio recording devices in their house as well as a software keystroke logger. The Bagleys are in the process of divorcing.
U.S. District Judge Lee Rosenthal ruled on October 18 in favor of the husband, saying that the court was required to follow a Fifth Circuit decision saying that the federal wiretap law known as Title III does not apply to marital relationships.â€ť

The rules in the courtroom are ever changing and it is very crucial for you to understand those cases that are governing your future.Â The â€śNo-Harmâ€ť Rule started in a few courts but now has expanded from coast to coast.
â€śWhen a marriage dissolves, there are often disputes over which parent should be awarded custody of the child or children. In those custody disputes, which are often bifurcated from the rest of the divorce litigation and may be the only unsettled issue remaining in the divorce case, the non-adulterous party sometimes attempts to introduce evidence of the infidelity of the other parent-spouse. Historically, such evidence was admitted because the law presumed that parental infidelity caused harm to children. 2 However, that presumption has been abandoned by most American courts. Today, most American courts refuse to admit evidence of parental infidelity in custody hearings or trials unless there is proof that the parent’s infidelity caused harm to the child. 3 This refusal to admit evidence, herein called the “no-harm” rule or assumption, demonstrates a strong substantive policy that favors avoiding litigation concerning matters of sexual lifestyle and morality over examining evidence concerning the best interests of the child.â€ť

A new Trend in the dating scene that grew extremely fast, and may have burnt out, The Cougar!Â New studies have shown the same results, the number of older women searching for younger men has drastically declined.
â€śFor example, the study showed most men desire attractive, young females. Often, they look for a much younger woman to be their partner because aging men are looking for ways to feel better about the inevitable process. Young men, aged 20 to 25, are targeting women their own age or slightly younger. No big news headlines here.
Women on the other hand were different but they didn’t cause a big surprise either. Most of the over 40 women “Cougars” in the study weren’t interested in being on the prowl for “Cubs.” They were seeking an older (and hopefully a wealthier man). These findings argue against the “cougar” craze that has become popular on TV Shows and movies, such as “Sex and the City,” and Courteney Cox’s ABC Television series “Cougar Town.”

New Mobile Apps Make Adultery Easier
The Way to Fight Back!
After last weekâ€™s post about mobile applications that made adultery easier we have done some digging into the tools out there to aid in investigations of these â€śPDAâ€ť cheaters.Â We located the â€śIphone Spy Stickâ€ť produced by Brickhouse Security that claims to help out people whose significant others have an Iphone.
â€śBesides recovering data such as text messages, calendar appointments, contacts, and pictures, customers can also download the phoneâ€™s map history, and discover searched locations and places navigated, including exact GPS coordinates.
Needless to point out, the tool is beyond privy, but those who truly suspect their spouse is messing around may be well entitled to use it.
iPhone Spy Stick also lets you view web history, contacts, and download voice memos.
The data can be saved on any computer or portable storage drive for anytime viewing, and it looks just like an ordinary USB flash drive, so its purpose is not given away at first glance.â€ť
