Help! My spouse is cheating!

Cheating Spouse Investigations

Divorce rates are rapidly rising worldwide, and often the primary cause of marital breakdown is infidelity. If you think that your partner is engaging in extra-marital activities, you can position yourself in the best possible position to get what it is you want out of the divorce proceedings, by providing legally substantial evidence of your partner’s wrongdoing. As private investigators, we have the ability to locate and provide a vast amount of evidence to support you during this emotionally wrought time, and help you make the most out of a bleak situation. Here is an overview of some of the ways a private investigator can find the evidence you need.

Vehicle Tracking

By tracking your spouse’s vehicle, we can make detailed reports on where your spouse is going during the day and what length of time was sent at each place. Of course, we know that most of these places will be entirely innocent, as your spouse will still travel to work, shops and to visit family, but if there is anything out of the ordinary we will be able to spot this almost instantly.

Address Ownership

Tying perfectly in to our ability to track your spouse’s vehicle is our ability to unearth the owners of an address. From the vehicle report you will know what addresses your partner has visited and for what length of time, but with our ability to uncover addresses, you will now be able to establish exactly who your spouse is visiting. This can give you solid evidence that their activities are perhaps not as innocent as they may claim.

Phone Number Search

If your spouse is receiving suspicious calls or using their phone a lot more, and you believe this is related to their infidelity, we can conduct a phone number search. Using the phone number that your spouse is in contact with, we can trace the address that the phone is registered to, as well as the ownership details. Coupling this with the response from the vehicle tracking and address search, if the evidence from the phone number search fits in, we will have plenty of evidence of your spouse’s cheating.

In summary

Private investigators can use vehicle tracking, address search and phone number search tools and techniques to help you catch a cheating spouse. This evidence can all be used in divorce proceedings, to help you achieve a more favourable outcome for yourself. If you think your spouse may be cheating, contact us today.
