The obvious signals that your spouse is up to something could range from spending a lot of time 'at work' or perhaps more time than normal 'out with friends'. The more subtle indicators that you are being lied to are conveniently hidden from your view especially if you are not familiar with computers, e-mail or the Internet.

In situations such as this, a Computer Forensics Investigator can help uncover what exactly is going on. Computer Forensic Investigators can identify the truth by examining the computer's hard drive and see what websites, e-mails, chat logs and other pieces of useful information are available to help you. Once the information is collected and you have had time to go over the data, you will then have the evidence you need to either believe that your relationship is still solid and there isn't any lying and cheating occurring. Or, that there is and now you will need to evaluate your options and possibly file for a divorce.

The types of information that can be collected by a Computer Forensics Investigator include:

They also obtain access to protected or encrypted data by using specialized software. They are able to untangle the web of data and analyze emails, Internet searches, file transfers, online account transactions and anything else a computer is used to do over the Internet.

If you are in a situation where you feel that your partner or spouse is lying and cheating on you, it is up to you to take action. A computer forensics investigation can help you take those steps to collect the evidence you may need to protect yourself and your family.
