How to Catch a Cheating Spouse? Tips from a Private Investigator

Nothing stings like the betrayal of a loved one. While many people agree that hiring a private investigator is the best course of action when it comes to finding out whether or not your partner is cheating, there are some things you can do on your own as well.

Here, our private investigator highlights how to catch a cheating spouse.

Track and record your findings

Besides gaslighting, blaming, charming, and redirecting, lying is the main weapon in the cheater’s arsenal. Once they run through their lineup of excuses and answers, it may seem like you have somehow made up the entire scenario of betrayal.

However, trusting your memory alone isn’t recommended. It’s important to have backup and there’s simply no way of proving the facts without it. Try writing down the evidence in a separate notebook—contact names, locations, dates, times, and other details involving the discovery or discretion.

Take pictures after finding evidence of adultery. When possible, use voice recording devices – and always email copies or keep them in a safe place to access later in case your partner attempts to get rid of the evidence.

Monitor their smartphone usage

Most people are attached to their favorite tech devices nowadays. Living with your partner gives you substantial access to their behaviors. It’s one thing to catch up with coworkers or friends or play a video game during TV time. But is your spouse installing new messaging apps or using the current ones more often? And are text conversations deleted daily (or locked)? Is their phone suddenly restricted or locked so you can’t access certain apps? Are they sleeping with it under their pillow? Are they bringing the phone with them as they leave the room?

If you have access to the family desktop computer or their laptop, don’t hesitate to check the browsing history too.

Trust your gut

While having occasional concerns that your partner is bored is fine, recurring concerns or paranoia means it’s time to trust your gut. Don’t rush to accuse them yet because you may still be wrong. However, if your intuition continues to scream, it may be time to listen.
