Before you read your partner’s emails, before you check the Facebook messages, before you read the text messages … we hope you read this first.
Doing your own sleuth work can be tricky. You get suspicious. You start to scour their office, their belongings, and eventually you find yourself figuring out, finding and then typing their password into an e-mail service, or their Facebook account. When you do this, you just may find all the evidence you need to confront your significant other about a possible affair.
You think you have everything in the bag? – Think again!
By doing your own “research” and gathering your own evidence, you could potentially be violating federal electronic communication privacy laws regarding “unauthorized access” of a protected computer, communication device or information system. This and similar federal laws protect Facebook accounts, text messages, voicemails, e-mails, and any other types of electronic information that is delivered via an electronic device. If found guilty, this could cost you more than your marriage. If your partner is cheating on you, this kind of information would be extremely valuable for them when your case goes to court. What’s worse? Criminal charges may be filed against you and these charges could be the difference between winning a child custody case, or other divorce proceedings.
Please, before you begin to conduct your own investigation, contact a Private Investigator who can legally obtain the information that you are looking for. If our Investigators cannot assist you, they can direct you on where you may get further legal advice from a divorce attorney or even a criminal attorney whom may also help you for the better.
