Consider this alarming statistic: almost 50% of people admit that they have been unfaithful to their partner at least once during their lifetime.
As rewarding as a loving relationship can be, even the best partnerships can be faced with challenges. Whether it’s arguments about money, differing opinions about childrearing, or spending long hours at the office with coworkers of the opposite sex, being in a long-term relationship isn’t easy.
If you suspect that you have a cheating spouse, there’s a strong chance that your suspicions are correct. In our experience, partners who think that their spouse is cheating are right a whopping 95% of the time.
We understand that this can be an emotional time. You’re likely feeling a mix of hurt, anger, and betrayal. You want answers, and it’s important to proceed carefully. We are experts at catching cheating spouses, and we’ll help you uncover the truth so that you can proceed in a way that makes sense for you.
What Not to Do When Trying to Catch a Cheater
The first time you notice something off with your spouse, you might be compelled to act. A sudden change in behavior, overhearing a phone call, or catching your partner in a lie might alert your spider senses, but we urge you not to act rashly.
Here’s what not to do:
- Don’t confront or accuse your partner. If they know you suspect something, they might make changes to avoid getting caught. The trick is for them to feel comfortable and secure in their lies, making it easier for them to get caught.
- Don’t try to investigate your partner yourself. Your partner can easily find out if you decide to follow, snoop on their computer, or read text messages on their phone. This can do more damage to the relationship.
- Don’t use spyware or tracking devices to catch a cheating spouse. These can be illegal. If you are caught installing something on your partner’s phone and end up going to court over custody or finances, these actions could hurt your case.
Dishonest spouses can be tricky to catch. Cheater behavior can change dramatically and evolve when the cheater feels trapped or that their game is up. We know you want answers fast. Leave it to the professionals to get the job done with expert precision.
Cheating in Modern Society
In modern society, spouses have more opportunities to cheat. Social media, dating sites, mobile phone technology, and two-income households have all increased the chances for spouses to find someone new that they like and begin relationships outside of their marriage.
Even with the use of modern conveniences of Instagram and Tinder, a full 85% of affairs still begin the workplace. For one thing, the amount of time spent with coworkers can be more than with your spouse. Also, it’s not uncommon to bond over projects, travel together, and develop strong friendships with people over the course of a career that could lead to something inappropriate.
How to Catch Cheating Spouses
A cheating spouse is best caught through surveillance. Once you get video footage, it’s much more difficult to deny. It’s objective and extremely clear.
We recommend working with a licensed investigator to perform surveillance and monitor a cheating spouse. Investigators have a variety of high-tech tools at their fingertips, including mobile, handheld and covert cameras that can operate in a variety of conditions, including low-light and long distances.
Working with a third party to find out and expose a cheating spouse is also vital if you’re trying to catch a cheater for other purposes than just solving the mystery of what’s happening in your relationship. The evidence gathered by an investigator could influence child custody cases, asset allocation or alimony in divorce proceedings, insurance and liability cases, and more.
If you’d like to know the truth about a cheating spouse, work with a licensed investigator to uncover the answers.
