Infidelity Investigation

Infidelity investigation is one of the most common reasons private investigation is sought out, and we can give you the results you need for real peace of mind.

Did You Know
51% of married men and 67% of married women did not know of their spouse’s extramarital activity

Private Investigators spend the majority of their time on matrimonial investigations. Despite this fact, investigators report that clients working with them for help with domestic matters and infidelity are often reluctant or embarrassed to share their personal problems. There is no reason to be shy about seeking out a private investigator. Not only are many investigators very experienced in this type of case and achieve results quickly and efficiently, but these results can dramatically improve your life.

We offer our infidelity investigative services to clients in the following cities and surrounding communities:

Infidelity Investigation – What Exactly Does It Involve?

Most of our private investigators at EPIS are hired for infidelity investigations. Most of their work involves conducting domestic surveillance of spouses or domestic partners who are suspected of having extramarital affairs. This means our infidelity private investigators have vast experience in these types of cases; you can rely on their professionalism, skills and confidentiality.

The first step to retain an infidelity private investigator is to contact us online or by phone to schedule a confidential consultation. We will gather all the necessary information and outline how your case will be handled. After you are assigned a specific infidelity private investigator, they will provide contact information and establish a routine of communication to keep you up-to-date on their progress.

Although anyone can perform surveillance, having a license to do so exempts a private investigator from being charged with stalking. This is important to know, because the most common technique used in infidelity investigations is “passive surveillance.” This is simply a pattern of surreptitiously observing the daily activity of the person suspected of marital infidelity and then providing documentation of those actions. However, our trained investigators possess skills and tools not known by the general public.

During this surveillance, your infidelity private investigator will gather and document evidence that includes images, video and other materials. This will reveal the places visited, timeframes, schedules, activities and persons involved. All this evidence is kept in strict privacy and becomes solely your property when the investigation is concluded.

Common Mistakes People Make When Retaining a Private Investigator to Conduct an Infidelity Investigation

Based on our present and past experience, the most critical error people make when they retain our private investigators to conduct an infidelity investigation is to let their spouse know that he or she is under surveillance. This is a huge mistake. The cheating spouse will often change their pattern of behavior, making it even more difficult to obtain any evidence of infidelity. Also, the very news of an investigation reveals your suspicions, which can effectively end the relationship in some cases.

Another serious mistake clients make when hiring a private investigator for infidelity investigation is talking to friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members about the investigation. Information about the surveillance inevitably leaks out and gets back to the spouse under suspicion. Similar to above, this causes complications in the investigation and can even end the relationship prematurely.

About Infidelity Investigation and Adultery

Infidelity investigation usually relates to any committed relationship; however, adultery is more specific to marriages. If your spouse or domestic partner is cheating, you deserve to know the truth. EPIS infidelity investigators can help you begin the healing process. This may or may not include remaining in the relationship. If you decide that your marriage or partnership is irrevocably broken, our discreet and professional services will provide the hard evidence you need to protect your interests. Coping with infidelity is not easy, but living with it is worse.

Infidelity Investigation – Evaluating the Behavior of the Suspect

Spouses or partners engaged in infidelity will often display certain signs that indicate something is being hidden. Some common signs can include:

  • Changes in spending / unexplained expenditures
  • Changes in schedule
  • Increased travel
  • Increased confidentiality
  • Increased emphasis on fitness or appearance
  • Increased internet usage
  • Obsession with cell phone privacy
  • Disconnecting with the spouse
  • Disconnecting with others
  • Displaying bold behavior
  • Establishing new acquaintances

Common Term Definitions Used in Infidelity Investigations

Infidelity – (colloquially known as cheating) is a violation of the mutually agreed-upon rules or boundaries of an intimate relationship. In most legal jurisdictions, it is grounds for a divorce.

Two Types of Infidelity

  1. Physical Intimacy – this usually includes sexual relations with someone outside the marriage or committed domestic partnership. It is almost always a violation of the trust and commitment to monogamy that is typically understood within marriage or committed domestic partnerships.
  2. Emotional Intimacy – this can often be ambiguous, but persons can become emotionally intimate with another person outside the marriage or committed domestic partnership. Determining when a line is crossed that violates trust is more difficult here and may vary widely between different relationships.

Adultery – this commonly refers to sexual activity with someone other than the partner to which one is committed. Sexual infidelity in marriage is often called adultery, philandering or “having an affair,” while in slang terms it may simply be called “cheating.”
