Detector Testing Getting to the Truth of the Matter
Infidelity, or cheating, is only one of several topics
that can be covered in a polygraph test. It is also effective in
cases of suspected drug use, money issues, gambling, internet
cheating, internet pornography, etc. Please

The following example is a polygraph test session showing
information requested based on an infidelity case. The entire
polygraph procedure is completed in a single office visit. There
is no time limit to the session.
All issues are discussed
openly in front of the individual who will be submitting to the
polygraph examination. The individual taking the test needs to
know what issues are in question before the test is
administered. For example:
- Is my partner CHEATING?
- Is he/she lying to me about this issue?
- What else are they hiding?

Prior to the actual taking of the test, the examiner will
review with you all of the questions that he intends to ask
during the test. The question review is very important. It is
done to insure that all the issues are covered. At this point
the couple is asked if the questions are acceptable to them. Do
they cover all the concerns, or do they need to be revised.
If the questions are acceptable to the couple, we are now
ready to begin the testing:
- The examiner and the person taking the test will be
alone in the examining room during the polygraph test.
- You, the person who requested the test, is asked to step
into the waiting room where you can hear the entire
procedure. You are not permitted to be in the examining room
during the actual testing procedure. This is because you
would be distraction to the person taking the test.
- When the procedure is done you will be called back into
the examining room and given the results.
