Knowing your partner is cheating is one thing. Catching them in the act is another. Here are some techniques the pros use to catch a cheating spouse.
All relationships go through rough patches. But if your intuition is continuously warning that something’s wrong in your relationship, chances are there’s something to it. However, cheaters tend to be sneaky and know how to gaslight and cover their tracks. So finding the evidence yourself can lead to dead ends and loads of headaches. Fortunately, private investigators know how to find that information and use a range of techniques to catch a cheating spouse.
Modern technology can capture great pictures and videos, but even the newest Apple and Android devices can produce grainy images or choppy audio when it’s really needed. Private investigators may conduct surveillance of the suspected cheater to document their activities and interactions with others, but they have access to professional equipment and devices far outside of the typical consumer’s budget and expertise. They may use discreet cameras or GPS tracking devices to monitor their movements and gather evidence, and a professional private investigator can ensure all recorded evidence is clear and legally obtained.
Social media can be an endless source of evidence if you know where to look and how to access privacy issues. Private investigators may use industry resources to search social media and online platforms to gather evidence of infidelity. They may monitor the cheater’s emails, text messages, and social media accounts even their partners don’t know about to look for incriminating messages or photos.
Background checks aren’t just for business needs. Private investigators may conduct background checks on the suspected cheater and their associates to gather additional information that may be relevant to the investigation or disclose secrets leading to an ongoing affair or similar sketchy behaviors.
Personal and Business Interviews
Cheaters may use friends and colleagues to cover up their external activities, so prying information from those sources can be difficult for the concerned partner. However, legal professionals know tricks and tactics to decipher clues that can lead to the truth. Private investigators may therefore interview people who are close to the suspected cheater, such as friends, family members, or coworkers. These interviews may reveal information about the suspected cheating or provide insight into the person’s behavior and activities.
Practically everyone has 24/7 to their tech devices, even if they just use a smartphone. But privacy is a serious issue for cheaters. Even if you manage to get into a locked device, the evidence found through that action could be inadmissible in court. Private investigators know how to use technical analysis to gather evidence of infidelity. They have the ability to legally analyze the cheater’s computer or smartphone to look for evidence of inappropriate communications or other suspicious activity.
Be aware that private investigators must operate within the boundaries of the law and respect the privacy of all parties involved. Never work with an investigator who claims otherwise. It’s also essential to work with a reputable and licensed private investigator to ensure that all evidence gathered is admissible in court, should it be needed.
