How to choose a Private Eye to investigate a cheating spouse

There is nothing worse than suspecting your spouse is being unfaithful. Accusations can fly easily, and without proof of their infidelity, it is very easy to get caught in a vicious cycle from which there is no escape. Most people will deny such allegations if they believe there is any chance of getting away with it. Such denials will leave you uncertain, and a skilled liar can have you doubting things you previously knew to be true.

Accusing your spouse of cheating can have devastating consequences for your relationship. If they are innocent and you wrongfully accuse them, you can do irreparable harm to the trust between you. If they deny the allegations you will forever wonder what the truth is. Hiring a private investigator to discover if your spouse is being unfaithful is a sensible approach to a delicate situation. If they are being unfaithful you will be in full possession of the facts and able to make a decision. If you confront them they will not be in a position to deny the affair, and will be forced to deal with the issue. If on the other hand, they are doing nothing wrong, your fears will have been allayed and they will be none the wiser.

When deciding who to hire there are several things you should do. Firstly, research the licensed private investigators working in your area. It’s vital that you choose an experienced private investigator, who will handle your situation delicately and professionally, and bring you the answers you need. PIs often have a specialist area: look specifically for someone with experience investigating spousal infidelity.

Ask potential PIs what is included in their services. Ensure there will be a thorough investigation and get specifics. It’s important to know what they are trained in, and ensure they use all methods available to them. PIs cannot tap phone lines, obtain phone records through pretexting, or pose as law enforcement officers; however, there are still many methods at their disposal, such as using hidden cameras, physical surveillance and photography, GPS tracking, investigating social networks, internet monitoring and even using decoys to try to tempt a cheating spouse.

Shop around for a good price. An extensive investigation can get quite expensive – it’s important to have a clear understanding of the costs involved before you start. They will likely require a deposit and may charge for expenses incurred during the investigation, in addition to the time and services involved.

Finally, be absolutely certain you know what you want before you engage a PI. They are exceptionally good at getting to the truth. In the case of spousal infidelity, the truth is often painful and costly, both emotionally and financially. Be completely sure you want the truth, and fully commit to the investigation with the PI of your choice.
