Cell Phones: The Tell-Tale Evidence of an Affair

If you believe your spouse is cheating, and need evidence of the affair in order to file for a divorce on the grounds of infidelity, then a cell phone may be the first place to look. In our digital society, almost everyone has a private cellphone that can hold all sorts of secrets blocked behind the password. If you want to determine whether or not a spouse has been cheating, then you may want to inspect his or her cell phone for more information.

For example, if your spouse often turns off his or her phone when you are in the room, or is defensive when you ask about the phone, these are signs that there may be secrets hidden on the device. If your spouse always leaves the room to take phone calls, or because upset whenever you answer his or her phone, it may be because there are often people calling that are in on the secret.

If you are suspicious, you can check the cell phone history for incoming and outgoing calls and check for incoming and outgoing text messages. Typically, this is considered rational behavior and you cannot be prosecuted or legally punished for inspecting a spouses' phone. As well, you can check the contacts list in a spouse's phone for any names you are not familiar with or check recent calls, missed calls, and dialed calls for suspicious numbers.

Also, look at the phone bill to see if there is any suspicious usage. You can also insist that the cell phone bill be in your name and your spouse's name, which will allow you to request a right of the bill if you become suspicious of activity.
