How to Catch a Cheater Miami Beach South Beach

Relationships are something that most people must work at, unfortunately, some relationships go through more troubles than others. Many people have had to deal with the pain of a spouse or significant other cheating on them. Sadly some of these people never even knew what was happening right under their nose. This is important why it is good to know how to catch someone cheating. The earlier you catch the person, the better the outcome will be.

Believe it or not, yes, it is illegal in Florida to be a cheater of your spouse. Florida law provides that adultery is a second-degree misdemeanor, and is punishable by law.

However, as you can imagine, although that law is still on the books, it’s not enforced. Many people have been a cheater in Florida, including Tiger Woods, and have not been convicted of a crime.

Being a cheater can make a difference in the divorce, though. In order to get a divorce in Florida, you do not have to prove that any infidelity took place – you just have to tell the court that the marriage is irretrievably broken.

You can’t allege that the infidelity was the reason for the divorce. Instead, you will introduce evidence of your spouse’s adultery when it is time to divide the assets and award child custody and alimony.

In Florida, judges cannot award one spouse a larger share of the marital property because one spouse was a cheater. However, if one spouse used marital assets on his or her lover, the court can take that into consideration when dividing the property, and can award the wronged spouse more of the marital assets.

In general, cheating will not affect whether or not a spouse gets visitation with the children. It can, however, affect who gets custody.

If your spouse was a cheater, you may introduce evidence to the court showing how the cheating affected your children in a negative way, and the court may decide the adulterer should not have primary custody.

The court can take cheating into account when awarding alimony. The alimony award is not designed to punish the cheating spouse, however.

Here are some ways that will tell you how to catch someone cheating.

Observe Their Behaviors

The first thing one would want to do when trying to catch someone cheating is observed how that person behaves.

Catch Them in a Lie

Not many people know how to catch someone in a lie. The truth is, it’s very hard to do. If you suspect someone is lying to you, start to write down your conversations with them so it’s easier for you to remember what was said.

Look For Suspicious Activity

Many people ask the question how you know someone is cheating on you. This can be a tough question to answer as some behaviors that seem odd may be due to something else. There are ways to collect enough information to call them out on any suspicious activity, though, which could lead to a confession. Be persistent and question everything, if that person truly loves you they will tell you. Although sometimes it takes directly catching them.

Follow Them

This one may not be easy to do. However if you have the means to follow the person in question, this is a great way on how to catch someone cheating. If the relationship is psychical, following that person is a sure way on how to catch someone cheating. Just be sure that if you do, you remain as calm as possible and give that person a chance to explain as well.

There are many ideas for how to catch someone cheating, some are harder than the others. Cheating is something that hurts and betrays and should be taken seriously. At first, it may not be clear on how to catch someone cheating but with enough work put into it anyone can catch someone.

In today’s technological way of life, it is also important to pay attention to their virtual lives.

How to Catch a Cheating Spouse Online

Just because your spouse hasn't had any physical contact with someone doesn't mean he isn't cheating online. If you think your spouse is a cheater, his behavior on the computer can tip you off to a problem.

By paying attention to certain clues, you can catch him cheating using the very tool he uses to be a cheater.

Step 1

Examine the Internet history on your spouse's computer, especially if it is a private laptop. Look for websites that your spouse may have visited that look like dating, pornography or chat sites. If possible, visit some of the sites to see what type of people frequent them. If the Internet history is empty, it could also alert you to a problem; your spouse may have deleted everything so you couldn't see what she's been up to online.

Step 2

Install an Internet history tracker like IE History Tracker, K9 or Surf Logger to track your spouse's movements online, whether he remembers to delete them from his history or not. All programs will allow your spouse to erase the history from the browser, but will send you a report or allow you to access a report of the websites that have been visited. You're also able to set websites to be blocked.

Step 3

Ask your spouse for her passwords to access a certain account, suggests dating website True.com. If she seems upset or tries to talk you out of seeing her emails, she could be guilty of infidelity via emails. Also, if she's recently changed passwords on accounts that you once had access to, it could be a sign of her hiding something. If you are able to access her emails, look through them briefly. If it seems as though she's deleted emails when she typically allows them to stay open, she may be trying to remove the evidence of her infidelity.

Step 4

Watch how he uses the computer. If you walk into a room and he quickly powers down or turns away, he may be up to something, suggests private investigation firm the Custer Agency. Keep a close eye on how he acts when you are in the same room as his computer; he could act nervous or try to get you away from the computer because he doesn't want to be discovered.

Once you are certain that your spouse is cheating on you, you must catch your spouse in the act. There are free ways to catch a cheater spouse in the act without hiring a costly private investigator. You can tell your spouse that you are going out for the weekend. Your cheating spouse will definitely not stop you but rather encourage you to go. He will then call up the other woman over to the house to spend the weekend. To catch him in the act, you need to suddenly turn up at the house before the weekend is over, ideally during night time.

Unfortunately, if your marriage doesn’t work out you will more likely have thought to ask for a divorce and if you are living in Florida here are the steps to begin your process.

How to Get a Divorce in Florida

Florida divorce statutes (found in Chapter 61, Florida Statutes), give you the option of deciding how to get a divorce. What we mean by this is that, other than the mandatory establishment of child support when there are children of the marriage, you and your spouse will have a lot of room to decide how to do the divorce in terms of litigation or negotiation.

There are really only two kinds of divorce you can choose. The first is to have an uncontested divorce. The second is a contested divorce, where you go through the litigation process in court until you get a final judgment dissolving your marriage. Each is introduced below.

Uncontested divorces in Florida are those where you and your spouse agree that you will get divorced. Besides that, you both also agree on every single thing that needs to be decided as a result of having been married and wanting to get divorced.

Uncontested divorces usually take less time a lot less, sometimes as little as three weeks and tend to be less expensive than a contested divorce.

It is worth noting that no attorney can represent both parties, but if the parties agree, then one lawyer can prepare the documents for an uncontested divorce.  On the other hand, the fact that each party has its own lawyer does not mean that theirs cannot be an uncontested divorce, and many divorces are done in this way without being as expensive as the public anticipates.

If your divorce is not uncontested, then it is a contested divorce. Contested Divorces are those where you and your spouse may agree to get a divorce but disagree as to everything else. Sometimes, however, one spouse may not even agree as to getting divorced. Contested divorces, then, are those that are litigated divorces.

Fortunately, there are many opportunities to turn a litigated divorce into an uncontested one as the case progresses through the system.

Litigated (contested) divorces tend to be lengthy and costly, with both sides receiving legal representation by their lawyers to be able to present evidence to the court or judge. Each party to a dispute has the right to require proof of claims made by the other party, to take sworn statements (depositions) from the other party or any witness or both, and so on. All this must be done according to rules of procedure and evidence, and each of these mini-processes costs money in terms of the time of the lawyers, cost of copies of documents, stenographers for depositions, etc.

Added to these factors is the high number of divorces filed annually as well as old actions that need modification of the final judgment, resulting in a slow process for you to get your contested divorce done because the time available to the courts for hearing and trials is limited.

In addition, some counties in Florida, which includes South Beach in Miami Beach area, have automatic orders that are applicable as soon as the divorce is filed.  This is the case now in Miami’s Family Court (the Eleventh Judicial Circuit for Miami-Dade County) where the Chief Judge, Bertila Soto, recently issued a Status Quo Temporary Domestic Relations Order, With or Without Children.  You can download a copy or at the Eleventh Judicial Circuit site.  This order automatically puts into place certain restraints against tinkering with support (as in access to money), children’s issues (preventing either parent from having contact with the children), assets and debt while the divorce is going on.  To modify these restraints, a party needs to ask the court to modify them until the final hearing or settlement in the case.
