Lets assume, for a moment, that you suspect your spouse is cheating on you. You lay awake at night wondering about all those strange texts that keep beeping, about where they have been when they’re late, or why after all these years the sex just isn’t as hot as it once was, if you’re even having it.
So you start with a Google search.
You quickly discover there are private investigators who will put a discreet tracking device on your spouse’s car and who, for a reasonable fee, will also conduct surveillance on them.
Great idea – but is it legal? The answer, like most things in law, is: It depends.
This article will address this very issue and explain how and when the use of tracking devices becomes a crime that can be punished with jail time. For legitimate and lawful uses of GPS trackers for surveillance, we will be speaking with private investigator Rich Allen, of McGarry and Associates, a Fort Lauderdale private investigations firm.
