Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Ace private investigator Bill Mitchell of South Carolina has published a guide to catch a spouse who is having an online affair.

In “One Clues of an Online Affair- Catch a Cheating Spouse!”, Mitchell suggests that these are 10 telltale signs of marital infidelity online:

1. Your spouse or partner spends excessive time surfing the Internet.

2. Passwords, instant message “buddy lists,” Internet email accounts and emails are concealed or even protected from you.

3. Your partner abruptly shuts off the Internet and/or computer when you approach.

4. The computer and monitor are always positioned to avoid your scrutiny.

5. The Internet history is cleared every day, including chat sessions, instant messaging, or your spouse downloads software that automatically overrides this information.

6. Your spouse uses the computer after you go to bed, when you fall asleep, or in the middle of the night.

7. Your spouse exhibits a compulsive need to be online and seems defensive when confronted to stop.

8. Your spouse shares personal information, photos and events with strangers online.

9. He or she plays online games and frequents “personals” chat rooms.

10. Your spouse exhibits the eight warning signs described in The More You know – Getting the Evidence and Support You Need to Investigate a Troubled Relationship.

Can an Uncontested Divorce Be Filed Under Grounds of Adultery?

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

A misconception many divorcing spouses have is that an uncontested divorce must be a no-fault divorce or filed under grounds similar irreconcilable differences.

The confusion begins with understanding the difference between an uncontested divorce and a no-fault divorce. An uncontested divorce is simply a divorce in which the two parties have resolved all issues to settle their divorce. There are no “contested” issues that need to be negotiated or settled by the court. Most divorces will eventually end up uncontested, because most divorces are settled out of court. The challenge lawyers and spouses face is how much time and negotiation it will take for the case to become uncontested.

Most spouses doing their own divorce typically have an uncontested situation from the start, so this being said it is only natural for the divorce to be filed under a no-fault or irreconcilable differences ground.

On the contrary, it is very possible that two spouses can agree in an uncontested fashion that infidelity did occur and that the grounds of adultery would be appropriate.
