If you suspect that your spouse is cheating, you may be considering spying on him or her to catch them in the act. One thought you may have is to use GPS tracking to trace the movements of your spouse’s car, or perhaps you want to use a cell phone tracking technique. We can help you do this, but first, you must understand what is legal when using GPS to track your spouse.

Using a GPS Device On a Car

There are many devices that can be used to track the movements of a car, but the law limits what can be done by a private citizen. Even law enforcement is limited without a warrant signed by a judge. As a private citizen, you can only use GPS tracking in a car that you own or co-own. In other words, the car title must have your name on it, if the title also has your spouse’s  name it’s still okay.

We should caution you though, even if you can legally track your car with a GPS device, you will want to do so without your spouse becoming suspicious. We have the experience and skill to use GPS tracking in a way that will increase the chances of success. In addition our GPS tracking devices give us real time data on where the vehicle is which let us combine it with surveillance to have an agent get video of whatever is taking place.

Using a Cell Phone For Tracking

The laws regarding using a cell phone to track the movement of an individual are similar to those for a car. The phone must be on a plan that is in your name or a plan where both phones are on the same plan. In addition, the phone must have a location tracking feature that is turned on. Using a cell phone to track your spouse may not provide all needed details, but when used in conjunction with other private investigator tools, can be a useful technique. In the hands of a private investigator, cell phone tracking is only one tool that may used to uncover evidence of cheating.

Using Other Surveillance Techniques

One of the best techniques to track an individual is to simply follow them. This is not recommended for those without experience. Skill is required to follow someone without being detected, and if you attempt to do this yourself, you may be spotted by your spouse,  possibly making things worse.

We can physically track someone without detection and document any evidence of cheating. Often, based upon our initial investigation, there is a specific location that a spouse is most likely to be when they are cheating. We can record your spouse and his or her partner on video, together at a suspicious location or simply or expressing inappropriate affection towards each other in public.

If you suspect your spouse is cheating on you, give us a call and tell us about your specific circumstances. Although using GPS or cell phone tracking may be possible, it will depend upon your particular circumstances. We first analyze your situation, then apply our investigative expertise to determine a comprehensive approach in uncovering the information you need. We can confirm your suspicions or discover if you are wrong, and we can do this without your spouse ever knowing they were under surveillance.
