Learning That Your Partner Was Unfaithful Is Hard. Hiring a Private Investigator Doesn’t Have To Be.
Walking down the aisle on your wedding day, it is unlikely you thought that you would one day consider hiring a private investigator because you suspected your spouse was cheating. But months, years, or decades into your relationship, your suspicions become too much to ignore. Whether you notice changes in behavior, an increased distance between the two of you, or you discover clues that lead you to the conclusion that your partner has been unfaithful, getting the truth matters.
And getting the truth is what hiring a private detective is all about.
Of course, no one wants to be at a point in their marriage or relationship where trust has so deteriorated that hiring a private investigator becomes necessary. But infidelity happens – often. According to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, national surveys indicate that 15 percent of married women and 25 percent of married men have had at least one extramarital affair.
If you want confirmation that your significant other is being unfaithful, here are some frequently asked questions about hiring a private detective for cheating.
Why Should I Hire A PI To Get Proof Of Infidelity?
Uncovering a partner’s unfaithfulness can be painful and traumatic. But if such a betrayal leads to divorce, it can also give the innocent spouse an advantage in the proceedings. Faced with evidence of their betrayal, a cheating spouse may be more likely to agree to a favorable settlement rather than having their affair exposed in a courtroom and, by extension, the public.
In addition, while Colorado is a “no-fault divorce” state, proof of adultery can sway a judge when making decisions about spousal support.
But Why Shouldn’t I Try To Find Out On My Own?
Uncovering infidelity is about facts. But for the person who believes that their partner is cheating, it is about emotions. This can lead to ill-advised decisions, unwanted confrontations, or even illegal conduct as they try to catch the cheater red-handed.
Most people also don’t know how to uncover an affair without being found out themselves, which can also exacerbate tensions and increase the chances of a violent or unfortunate incident. In fact, if the cheater thinks that their partner suspects an affair or is trying to expose it, the more effort they will make to cover their tracks.
Private investigators, on the other hand, know how to go about their business discreetly and undetected. A PI understands the law and the limits on what they can and cannot do as they conduct their investigation.
How Do Private Investigators Get Evidence Proving That Someone Is Cheating?
A skilled and discreet private investigator can use a range of methods and techniques to catch a cheating spouse, including advanced surveillance involving equipment and technology unavailable to others. Additionally, the proprietary techniques and technology that exceptional private investigators use allow them to uncover evidence of infidelity on computers and social media accounts, restoring and archiving complete Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, including supposedly deleted posts.
How Do I Go About Hiring a Private Investigator?
Most folks who consider hiring a private detective have never done so before. As such, it can be challenging to know where to start, what to look for, and who to trust with such a personal, sensitive, and important matter.
Take these steps to find the PI who is right for you:
- Ask around. Put the word out to friends and colleagues that you are in the market for a private investigator and see if they provide you with any names.
- If and when you do have the names of private investigators you are considering, look at their website, but more importantly, check out what others have to say about their experiences with the person on third-party review sites like Yelp!
- Ensure the detective is licensed in Colorado by looking here.
- When you speak or meet with a detective, ask about their qualifications and inquire about their experience handling situations like yours.
- Ask them for references you can speak with who can vouch for their skills, character, and professionalism.
