There are few things more frustrating than living with the suspicion that your spouse is cheating. Unfortunately, infidelity is far more prevalent than most people know, and it’s often difficult to put suspicions to rest once they’ve entered your mind. Thanks to modern technology and our ever-busier lives, many people have few options to get the peace of mind they need. One of the most effective ways to determine whether your spouse is cheating is to rely on the services of a private investigator. However, before you hire an investigator, there are five things you need to understand.

It’s Never Wise to Confront a Partner without Real Evidence of Cheating

First, you should think twice about confronting your spouse about your suspicions- at least until you have some sort of proof. Without photos or testimony from someone who witnessed the investigation, any premature confrontation will likely elicit nothing more than a denial. Worse, your loved one will become even more secretive, which could complicate a professional investigation.

There are Things You Can Do to Lay the Groundwork for a Solid Investigation

Instead of an accusation, you should begin to gather evidence yourself. Pay attention to potential signs of infidelity, like reduced physical intimacy, lack of affection, guarded phone habits, or notable changes in their work schedule or use of free time. You may also want to begin tracking their whereabouts, documenting who they’re with, how they’re spending money, and who they’re talking to on the phone.

You May Want to Discuss it With Your Attorney First

Your personal attorney may also be helpful, especially if your suspicions lead you to believe that marital troubles lie on the horizon. Discuss the matter with your lawyer to ensure that your interests are protected. That attorney may even be able to recommend a reliable private investigator to help with your situation.

Only Hire an Investigator with Experience in Infidelity Investigations

This one is critically important. Don’t just hire the first private investigator willing to take your case. Make sure that the firm has a track record of success in dealing with infidelity cases, to ensure that your investigator has the experience and expertise needed to get the answers you deserve.

Be Prepared for the Results of the Investigation

Finally, steel yourself for the results. That investigation is going to deliver some type of answer – and it’s vital that you be prepared to accept the results. If you suspect your partner of infidelity but are reluctant to definitively learn the truth, an investigation may present answers you’re not prepared to deal with.
