WHAT YOU CAN DO:

  1. Do not try to react in any way, but rather observe the situation with clarity and objectivity.
  2. Ask for expert advice, which could help you escape your current situation in the best possible way.
  3. Entrust the problem to an expert and try to regain control of your life.

WHAT YOU SHOULD AVOID DOING

  1. Do not carry out investigative activities yourself, as this could violate the privacy rights of the spouse and the evidence found may not have legal value.
  2. Try not to make the partner suspicious. Do not ask too many questions about his or her commitments and whereabouts and do not call him or her too often on the mobile; this could alarm the partner, making the investigation process more difficult.
  3. Avoid confiding in friends and relatives, because it is not only useless but could be counterproductive to the investigation.

ALWAYS BEAR IN MIND THAT

  • It is not possible to request telephone records; know the content of text messages sent or received by third parties; intercept telephone calls or to carry out earsdropping activities in private places.
  • It is illegal to spy on the Facebook profile, WhatsApp or emails of one’s partner.
  • Anyone committing one of these offences could risk imprisonment from 6 months to 4 years.
  • Anything collected via activities such as these cannot be used as evidence in court for a possible ruling on separation and/or for requesting apportionment of blame.
  • Always contact sector professionals who will help you find evidence that is reliable and valid in court, in full compliance with the law.
