How legal / admissible are audio recordings (not phone conversations) and GPS information in NC? I have proof of my spouse’s adulterous relationship because I hid both a GPS and an audio recorder in our vehicle.
The audio recorder captured my spouse’s side of a phone conversation, which went into specific detail about a recent meeting they had where they had sex (the sex was great, we’ll have to do it again soon, etc.), and the GPS confirmed that the car was parked at a residence which I am unfamiliar with. Also, numerous cell phone records of course.
The GPS is time-stamped, but the audio recording is not.
There have been other incidents of cheating in the past, which I have forgiven. I’ve tried to stick it out for our children, but I don’t deserve this and have to end it now, and just do the best I can for our kids.
My only goal is not to pay alimony, or as little as possible, because I feel my spouse has not lived up to their side of the marital vows, so I feel I owe them nothing in the way of support after I decide I’ve had enough.
I guess my question is, is this enough evidence? If it’s not legal, I don’t know how else I can obtain it, my spouse is very careful with covering their tracks. I cannot afford a PI. Of course the previous incidents of adultery are condoned since we stayed together after, but could they not be used to show a pattern of behavior along with this latest (uncondoned) act of adultery?
I’m not sure where to start here, so any help would be great. Thanks.
