Track Your Cheating Spouse With iPhone Application


There is a new application for the iPhone 4S. This application can track people. An interesting case involves a man who purchased a new iPhone 4S for his wife and loaded the “Find my friends app” onto her phone without her knowing about it. He had been suspicious about her meeting another man for liasons. She told him she was going to one place and he tracked her on the iPhone app. to another.

This new iPhone application can be used by boyfriends and girlfriends to track significant others to see if they are telling the truth as to where they’re going, should foul play be a possibility. The wonders of new technology. Now instead of hiring a private investigator to track your spouse, you can simply put an app on their iPhone and figure out where they’re going. So much for trust in relationships!

The new iPhone 4S has been a spectacular success. This new operating system has been purchased by more than four million people during its first three days on the market. It is too bad Steve Jobs didn’t live long enough to see this tremendous success of Apple’s newest product.

Saving Marriages After Adultery

adultery-150x150Adulterous relationships occur in approximately 50% of all marriages. The discovery of the adultery by the spouse can bring profound changes to the marital relationship. The betrayal causes pain and instability within the marriage. It is estimated that in less than a third of the situations involving adultery, the relationship between the couple ultimately returns to normal.

Handling Affairs

Dr. Tammy Nelson has recently written a book deals with how to successfully save relationships after the discovery of adultery. In her book, Dr. Nelson states “often affairs are like viruses, in that they’re opportunistic and they feed on a part of one’s self that is kept under ground, unknown even to one’s self.” Dr. Nelson discusses in her book reconnecting to the basic relationship between the parties.

She suggests the parties shouldn’t go into details about the facts of the affair. Instead, the couples should concentrate on re-connecting with each other. They should open up and deal with the insecurities and other problems in their relationship.

The Book: “Getting the Sex You Want”

Dr. Nelson, in her book, talks about the shame, anger and guilt experienced by couples when illicit affairs are discovered. She discusses the fact that an affair is usually an expression of sexual energy. She suggests the couple reinvent their relationship and deal with each others’ erotic needs. Forgiveness is not the answer to an affair. Re-establishing the relationship and dealing with sexual needs is more important.

This article discusses how to save a marital relationship. However, there are cases where the relationship can not be saved. In those situations, it is important to educate yourself with regard to the various issues involved in a divorce. The Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo

Halle Berry’s Custody Issues

Halle Berry was married to Gabriel Aubry. They have a daughter named Nahia. Halle Berry is an oscar winning actress. She has been engaged in a custody fight over her two year old daughter Nahia.

Halle has dropped out of a broadway play due to custody issues. She had been scheduled to make her broadway debut in September. The play was called the Mountain Top. Samuel L. Jackson is portraying Dr. Martin Luther King in the play. Halle was to portray a maid at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis where King was the night before he was shot.

Nasty Custody Battle

Halle has been involved in a nasty custody battle with her ex partner Gabriel Aubry. The couple initially split up in 2010.

Halle Pulls Out of Movie Entitled New Year’s Eve

Halle Berry has also dropped out of a movie entitled New Year’s Eve. She blamed her pending custody litigation involving her daughter for her dropping out of this film.

She has recently claimed she has been unable to amicably resolve her custody issues with the child’s father Gabriel. A representative for Halle Berry has stated “she has serious concerns for her daughter’s well being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her.” Is the real issue that Nahia’s father Gabriel Aubry is the parent who spends the majority of the time meeting the child’s needs while Halle pursues her career. It appears that Gabriel spends a majority of the time taking care of this child, while Halle is off making movies and appearing in other productions.

Downward Modifications of Child Support Denied

On February 17th, Justice Maron, sitting in the Supreme Court of Nassau County, rendered a decision in the case of S. S. v. M.S, denying the defendant husband a downward modification of his child support and spousal maintenance payments. The husband’s application to the court indicated that his income had been greatly reduced. He stated his income had been reduced by 58%. He explained the reduction in his income was caused by being terminated from his high-paying position. He claimed he was only able to find employment at a greatly reduced salary.

Liquidation of Assets

The father claimed he had been forced to liquidate assets to maintain the current rate of his financial obligations for child support and spousal maintenance. He also alleged his health was being negatively impacted by this situation.

Justice Maron found the father’s net worth statement was not complete.  His decision stated that the father failed to set forth the total amount of his assets. He found the father was a title owner to a brokerage account worth over a half million dollars and, in addition, he owned an individual retirement account with a cash value of over $163,000.

Justice Maron reached a conclusion, based on the father’s additional assets, that he had sufficient liquid assets available to fulfill his financial obligations for child support and spousal maintenance. The Judge ruled the current child support and spousal maintenance payments did not create an extreme hardship for the father.

This is an example of the high standards that must be met for a father to obtain a downward modification of child support and spousal maintenance.

Her children were forced to watch her torturing and abusing animals. Ms. McDonough choked a maltese dog to death. She did this in front of her ten year old daughter in June of 2006.

Son Turns in His Mother

Sharon McDonough had a son named Douglas. When he moved out of the home, he turned her into Rescue Inc., an animal rescue organization.

Same Sex Marriage Fails in Maryland

There is a bill before the Maryland State Legislature to allow same sex marriage. On Friday, March 11, 2011, this bill was withdrawn from consideration due to the unlikelihood of the bill being passed by the state legislature. The law was titled the Civil Marriage Protection Act. For the past few weeks, the bill sponsors have been claiming that Maryland would be the sixth state to pass a same sex marriage law. The sponsors’ difficulties have been increasing in recent days.

The National Organization for Marriage and The Family Research Council both opposed this bill. They claim that African Americans and religious opponents were the reason for the defeat of the bill. They stated that particular thanks must go to African American pastors, church members and delegates who spoke out against the attempted highjacking of the concept of civil rights.

The bill supporters hoped to obtain full marriage rights similar to those that exist in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Connecticut and the District of Columbia. They were not interested in a civil union statute, which they claim was a watered down version of what they wanted. For now, gays can’t marry in Maryland.

Divorce, Afghanistan Style

Afghanistan is one of the poorest, most backward countries in the world. Women in Afghanistan have rights similar to farm animals. They are pledged to marry at young ages by their fathers. They have virtually no say as to who they marry and where they live. They are subject to being disciplined by their husbands with beatings. In some situations, they become slaves to the husbands family and must listen to the husbands’ mother and serve his family. Sometimes women stuck in these horrendous marriages have no way out.


Instead of Divorce, Afghan Women Immolate Themselves

One of the few items available to women in Afghanistan is cooking oil. There have been a number of recent incidents where women have poured cooking oil over themselves and lit themselves on fire. Can you imagine how terrible one’s life must be before they’re willing to do this terrible act?  Afghani women attempt to end their lives because they cannot deal with their horrendous life situations caused by extremely toxic and violent marriages.

In some cases, the women of Afghanistan are set on fire by their mothers-in-law and/or their husbands. When they come in for treatment to the hospitals, they are forced to lie and tell the physicians that they’ve tried to kill themselves.

A Typical Story

Farzana was engaged to Ajat. She was married at the ripe old age of twelve. When she was seventeen, she set herself on fire. She had endured many years of beatings and abuse from her husband and his family. She poured cooking oil on herself in front of her husband and then set herself on fire. This is a story of desperation. Children forced to marry and made into slaves. Unfortunately, this is the country where American lives are being lost and for what reason?

Lawyer To Be Jailed If He Doesn’t Pay Daughter’s Tuition

piggy-150x150John J.P. Krol graduated from Fordham Law School and was admitted to the bar in New York in 1982.  He is a practicing attorney.  Mr. Krol was married in 1982 and he has two sons and three daughters.  In 2008, a year after Mr. Krol started a divorce proceeding, his daughter (only identified in the proceeding as “MK”) began attending the University of Rhode Island. Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Bruno wanted Mr. Krol to pay 86% of his daughter’s college education.  Mr. Krol refused to obey the court’s order.  His wife brought an application to hold him in contempt for violating the order.  Mr. Krol eventually paid his daughter’s college tuition.  The following year, he again failed to pay the tuition.  Mrs. Krol again filed a contempt proceeding.  As a result, Mr. Krol again agreed to pay his daughter’s expenses rather than proceed with the hearing on the contempt charges.

The next semester he yet again failed to pay for his daughter’s college education. Ms. Krol brought a third application to hold her husband in contempt.  Mr. Krol argued that he was financially unable to pay the college expenses.  Mr. Krol felt he was being penalized in this case and should not have the burden of paying education expenses.

Judge Bruno, in his decision, stated that “due to the urgency of the instant application, this court finds that the defendant has exhausted other less dramatic remedies, especially having been down this path several times before.  The plaintiff does not dispute he has not paid the daughter’s college education expenses nor does he dispute other less drastic remedies should be taken”.  Judge Bruno sentenced Mr. Krol to serve six months jail time in the Nassau County correctional facility if he did not pay the tuition.  He also advised Mr. Krol that he would file a complaint with the Grievance Committee of the Bar Association with regard to his conduct.  This matter was later resolved by a stipulation entered into between the parties.

Long Island Lawyer’s Adoption Scam

adoptionKevin Cohen, Esq., was an attorney on Long Island. He was recently found guilty of stealing in excess of $300,000 from families he represented. He had promised these families to help them adopt children. Unfortunately, the children did not exist.

Mr. Cohen was found guilty of 37 counts, including 16 counts of second-degree grand larceny, 11 counts of third-degree grand larceny and 10 counts of third-degree forgery. Mr. Cohen now faces up to ninety-two years in prison for his crimes. He will be sentenced on December 7, 2010. As a result of his criminal convictions, he will receive a mandatory disbarment.

Mental Illness

Mr.Cohen’s defense was “mental illness”. He represented himself at the time of trial. He claimed he could not be criminally responsible for his actions due to the fact he suffered from a mental illness. Unfortunately for Mr. Cohen, the prosecution was successful. They were able to show that he was a bright, intelligent lawyer who knew exactly what he was doing.

Judge John Kase, sitting in the county court of Nassau County, ruled that there was insufficient evidence to support an insanity defense for Mr. Cohen.

From October 2007 to the time of his arrest in September 2009, Mr. Cohen was in charge of an adoption agency called Adoption Annex. He represented to the public that he was an adoption expert. He charged his clients large sums of money for his legal services. He had also fabricated forged records and had shown his clients fake sonograms and fake medical records to convince them he had a child who could be adopted.

At the time of his arrest, Mr. Cohen’s bail was set at $500,000 and he was never able to make bail. Mr. Cohen deserves a long jail sentence !!.
