Think Your Spouse Is Cheating? Here’s How You Catch Them
On your wedding day you and your spouse made a promise to always be there and love each other for better or for worse. Unfortunately, not all spouses keep this promise and are unfaithful to the person they are supposed to love and support for life. But how do you know that your spouse is cheating?
As licensed private investigators, we have caught numerous cheating spouses with hard evidence that can be used in court or to simply get the answers you need to make an informed decision.
DON’T Confront Your Spouse Until You Have Proof
No matter what feelings you have toward your spouse at this time, do not confront them until you know their infidelity is a fact. Oftentimes people become withdrawn or secretive when there are problems happening in their life they’re ashamed to talk about – this does not always mean cheating. Additionally, accusing him or her of cheating before you have proof can make them pull away more and make it that much hard to gather evidence. As hard as it may be, try your best to keep your suspicions under wraps until you have hard evidence that they cannot dispute.
Keep a Journal of Your Spouse’s Suspicious Activity
If your husband or wife is working late or going out without you, keep record of this. This information can become useful to a private investigator when it comes time to track your spouse’s whereabouts. Having a log can also help you identify your husband or wife’s patterns and find something that appears out of the ordinary. As their spouse, you know what may look unusual or suspicious.
Write down the following:
- The date and time
- Their excuse for working late or why you’re not invited
- Who’s attending the outing or at work with them
- The location they say they are
- What time they come home
Pull Banking Statements to Look for New or Unfamiliar Spending Habits
Cheaters might be able to cover their tracks when it comes to hiding phone numbers or texts on their phone, but bank statements can provide the proof you need. Majority of the time, a person having an affair will be spending money on the other man or woman.
Do keep in mind, this does not 100 percent mean they are cheating as there could be other reasons for a change in spending habits. However, it is something that you should document regardless.
Look for the following:
- New credit cards
- ATM withdrawals
- Large purchases you were unaware of
- Charges that from a different city or state
- Large sums of money being loaded onto their Venmo/Cashapp
Hire a Licensed Private Investigator with Experience in Spousal Infidelity
When it comes to catching a cheating spouse, it’s best to have a professional investigator on your side. We have seen too many good people take matters into their own hands that have resulted in being sued for stalking. Additionally, a licensed private investigator is well-versed in state and federal regulations when it comes to tracking and monitoring an individual.
Some of the services a PI can provide include:
- Physical / Direct Surveillance
- GPS Tracking
- Covert / Hidden Cameras
- Social Media Investigation
Provide All Relevant Information Possible to the PI
When you do hire a PI to investigate a potential cheating spouse, it’s important to provide as much information as possible. The more information we have, the more accurate and effective our findings will be. For example, if your husband goes out for drinks with coworkers every Wednesday, we are able to easily track whether he does meet with only coworkers and where he goes afterward.
Information a private investigator may also need include:
- How long the relationship has been
- Persons of interest you suspect your husband or wife could be cheating with
- The bank statements you collected to show the places they go
- His or her day to day routine
- Places he frequently visits (best to look at bank statements)
- Source of transportation
Take This As a Warning: Be Prepared for What Could Be Uncovered
We warn our clients to brace themselves for the potential evidence we may uncover regarding their spouse. Suspecting your husband or wife of cheating can hurt, but seeing the physical evidence can be shattering. Also be prepared for us to potentially uncover other secrets like gambling addictions, drug use, family problems, or a secret second job.
