Key Pieces Needed for a Productive Surveillance

Wednesday February 8th 2012

In trying to understand if your spouse is cheating one of the best tools you have is your knowledge of their behaviors.  In hiring a private investigator the key items are the “when, where, and who”.  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 “When” – Identifying a time to send an investigator out is second to none in importance.  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 “Where” – Trying to figure out where to start an investigation may be just as troublesome as the time to begin.  If you believe that your partner is being untruthful about their behaviors they may also be untruthful about their whereabouts.  It is best to locate the specific places that they “have to be” in order to guarantee the investigator locating them at this location.

The “Who” – It is our policy at ASG to avoid doing surveillance on third parties but it helps if you have an idea of who the “other” person may be.  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.  We, at ASG, do not wish to go out on a whim and risk the chance of being unsuccessful in meeting your goals.  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.

Husband facing felony charges after reading wife's email

Wednesday January 5th 2011

Caution should always be heeded when you are tempted to do a bit of investigating on your own.  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.  The following excerpt was taken from a news source in Michigan in which the prosecutor’s office is taking a pro-active approach to making sure individuals are aware of the legality of gaining access to a spouse’s email.

“A 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.”

âThe Internet Busted Up My Marriageâ

Tuesday November 16th 2010

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.”

Texas Judge Upholds the Use of Key Logging Program on Spouses

Friday October 29th 2010

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.

A 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.”

If you are looking for that missing piece of information that may facilitate a successful surveillance, a key logging program may be a viable option for you.  It is crucial that this be done on a shared computer and not a private or work computer.
