• Hiring A Private Investigator to Confirm Infidelity:

    When suspecting infidelity of your partner, you’re going to want to confirm your suspicions as soon as possible, and one way to accomplish this is to hire a private investigator. Private investigators are professionals that are professionally trained in gathering information through surveillance, and this is the best way to confirm infidelity.

    “Statistics show that wives who suspect their partners of cheating are correct 85% of the time, while husbands who suspect their partners of cheating are right 50% of the time”.

    While talking with your partner about your suspicions and concerns is the rational thing to do, it’s best to wait to have that talk until you have physical evidence which includes photos or video showing your partner has in fact been unfaithful. If you confront and talk to your partner too soon or premature and without the evidence to support your suspicions, your partner will most likely deny the claims and turn it around on you, and they will then become even more secretive and careful with their activity and making it, even more, harder to obtain the evidence you need to prove infidelity.

    Before Hiring a Private Investigator:

    Before hiring a private investigator, you can collect vital information to assist the private investigator in conducting the investigation and surveillance which will have a greater impact on a successful investigation.

    One of the most important things to do is compile a journal of your partner’s behaviors. A cheating partner will often change their story numerous times, and a journal will help you identify the inconsistencies. Some of the things to log in your journal are the following:

    • Dates and times of outings/events
    • The other people attending the outing/event
    • Reasons why you are not invited
    • Excuses were given for why your partner is late

    The additional vital information you can gather and log into your journal are the following:

    • Monitor your partner’s mileage, receipts, credit card statements, ATM withdrawals, phone records, etc. to give you an idea of where they are going and if they are spending more money than usual.
    • If you share a cell phone account, contact the phone company for the text message log, which includes all text messages sent or received that weren’t deleted.
    • Try searching for other social media accounts to see if your partner has a secret profile under a different name.

    When you are finally ready to contact a private investigator, the journal you compiled above with the essential and vital information will significantly improve the success and outcome of the investigation.

    Things to Consider when hiring a Private Investigator:

    All private investigators when conducting infidelity investigations will utilize all available tools and resources available to them all while following strict laws preventing trespassing and violation of the expectation of privacy laws.

    It’s also good to keep in mind of the following:

    • Private investigators charge an hourly rate, and some will charge a flat rate, and all depends upon the type of investigation required to obtain the best outcome of your case.
    • Most to all private investigators require a retainer or deposit to be applied against fees for services rendered and expenses. Some things that determine this amount include travel involved, hotel costs, estimated number of surveillance hours, how many investigators are involved and the urgency of the case.
    • Keep in mind common additional costs, such as hotel parking fees per vehicle and mileage expenses.
