Chances are that if you suspect your husband or wife is cheating, more times than not they are. Infidelity is one of the most painful experiences someone can go through.
The emotions from betrayal from your cheating spouse can be devastating.
Allegations of adultery can be difficult to prove and requires evidence.
However, acting unwisely may do more harm than good.
A licensed private investigator with an understanding of surveillance laws can do a better job.
If you suspect your spouse is being unfaithful, there are some things you should NOT do:
Don’t Act Impulsively
When you are at the receiving end of infidelity, emotions can get the best of you. A cheating spouse may cause you to lose self-control. As a result, you may end up making irrational decisions. From bad-mouthing partners on Facebook to posting plans of destroying their belongings, there are many reckless things that betrayed spouses do. However, such actions can lead to legal troubles. Unfortunately, reckless behavior on your part could be used against you in divorce proceedings or a child custody case.
Don’t Accuse Without Proof
Understandably, you want to confront your spouse. However, are there facts to back up your suspicion? Unless you catch them red-handed with another person, your suspicions could be wrong. As experienced private investigators, we have seen cases where a partner was innocent. There could be many factors fueling your suspicion.

Moreover, if your spouse is innocent, baseless confrontations can cause unnecessary cracks in your relationship. Accusing a partner simply based on suspicion could cause irreversible damages to your otherwise healthy marriage.
Don’t Go Hunting for Proof on Your Own
Cheating spouses are extra careful, and they make their best attempts to keep their affair hidden. For example, some cheaters maintain a second phone number to stay connected with their lovers. Others are smart enough not to use their mobile phones at all. In such cases, it will be difficult for you to find anything concrete.
Hiring a private investigator is your best bet when it comes to collecting hard evidence. They are professionals who can easily identify signs of infidelity that are too elusive for you to spot! Most importantly, they know how to get the job done legally and discreetly. You don’t want your spouse to know that you’re doubting him/her.
Want to Catch a Cheating Spouse – Don’t Let Them Know Too Soon
In most circumstances, a cheating spouse will lie for as long as possible. Keep in mind, if you confront them too soon, they may find new ways to fool you. It’s best to wait until you have solid evidence.
Once you have proof of your spouse’s infidelity, you can rationally decide your next steps. If you choose to end your marriage, it’s best to get in touch with your attorney. The evidence produced by the private investigator can help you in the divorce proceedings.
