One of the most sensitive areas a private investigator can help is while investigating infidelity. This is already an area that requires compassion and thoughtful tact. There are usually heavy emotions and possible legal repercussions involved, and having proof of the truth can impact the results of life-changing decisions and rulings.

Private investigators are experienced in handling these situations and dealing in these cases with the highest level of discretion and professionalism. They know how to record evidence and compile the right
details in order to offer validation for any wrongdoing or even to validate a lack of wrongdoing. With attention to any clues regarding infidelity and a much more intimate understanding of patterns and indicators, they know where and how to look into the specific circumstances of each unique situation.

Infidelity is an area where you don’t have a lot of help. Police can’t be bothered by this type of thing and you and your friends or relatives would have difficulty staying unnoticed while trying to obtain proof of the infidelity. There’s also the fact that personal emotions can easily impact one’s interpretation of a spouse’s actions. A private investigator is someone who is emotionally removed from the cheating. Their judgment won’t be clouded and they will collect evidence of the facts in a way that is legally foolproof and irrefutable.

One of the best ways to catch someone committing infidelity is to follow them and watch their movements. As a stranger, a private investigator will blend into the background. They know the best ways to record the proof they need while maintaining an inconspicuous appearance. They also know
where the best places to watch would be through their know-how and experience. Private investigators are also aware of other ways to find evidence, such as phone records, bank records, or ATM withdrawals
to name a few. Through these and other means, they can follow a cheating spouse without literally following them and instigating suspicion.

Not only do they have the skills needed to get the proof, but they also have the equipment and are familiar with the best ways to use it. Many will go out and try to buy hidden cameras or microphones, but a private investigator already has these devices and understands them through their past cases. They’ve become aware of what works and what doesn’t.

While catching someone in an act of infidelity, it can be equally important to finding out that they haven’t committed this betrayal. Sometimes, during the course of a marriage, one spouse may find themselves stuck in suspicions and these worries can drive a person crazy as long as they remain uncorroborated. Hiring a private investigator can assuage these fears and relieve the stress by proving a spouse has remained faithful.

Whether your spouse is cheating on you or not, knowing the truth for certain can instigate the changes you need to make in order to get your life back together. Whether it’s trying to work on the marriage,
beginning a separation, or finalizing a separation, knowing is the tool to moving forward.

crime scene do not cross

A murder is a tragic and terrible act. The hope is that a person who commits such a crime is quickly caught and faces the consequences of his or her actions, but this is not always the case. While police put in a great deal of work to solve these crimes, they are sometimes overwhelmed, limited by jurisdiction, or unable to find the answers they need. When this happens, hiring a private investigator may be the best option to satisfy justice.

Family members and friends of someone who has been murdered are sometimes left with only questions, never knowing who harmed their loved one or what really happened. They deserve to know the truth, but unfortunately, the police can’t always do this. These family and friends, as well as the authorities investigating the crime, need help that only a professional and experienced private investigator can offer. Private investigators are able to dedicate more of their time to focus on one case. They can look at all the evidence with fresh eyes and they have the experience and know-how to see things that may have been hidden or not obvious before.

Working with authorities and the existing information they already have, private investigators can walk through the case details for a second look. They can re-interview witnesses and those who may know something important, taking time to ask questions and analyze the clues in a way that police are often spread too thin to do, looking for deeper details or inconsistencies. They can also move around in an inconspicuous way while surveying people or areas that may lead to further clues and leads. While staying professional, they are not bound by some of the limitations that tie the hands of the police. With their understanding and insight into the best processes of uncovering the facts, they offer a new set of eyes and ideas to these cases, broadening the amount of skilled investigative abilities.

Private investigators are unparalleled at tracking down clues and have a willingness to follow the leads down any path. Because they are hired to solve these cases, they are willing and able to dedicate much more of their time and hard work to find the answers. They handle these cases empathetically and help those who have lost someone know what the next best steps are. Instead of keeping family and friends of victims on the outside of the investigation, they help them to find closure and answers, keeping them involved and informed and offering advice and guidance. Their primary goal is to help the family and friends of the victim.

Occasionally, they have also been relied on to prove innocence. Someone who is accused of murder literally has their life on the line. In these situations, police are sometimes resistant to working with a private investigator and the wrongly accused has very few people on their side. Having one of those being an expert investigator could be crucial to proving their innocence.

If you’ve lost someone to the hands of a murderer and their killer has escaped justice, a private investigator may be able to help you find the outcome you need, and help the police collect the evidence they need to convict the person who committed such a terrible crime.

Whether it is termed infidelity, adultery or just a plain ol’ cheating spouse, the situations many people find themselves in are very much the same. Our experience in cases of infidelity at Valiant Private Investigators has taught us that the name a person chooses to use to define their situation is heavily influenced by their stage in life. We find this interesting because although the reasons may vary, the effect is usually the same; feelings of betrayal, hurt and sometimes unforgiveness. Over the years we have found that people who have children, are young and unmarried or are middle aged and over, have no problem using the term “cheating spouse” while others prefer more politically correct terminology.

Searching for Answers

People are always in search of answers and seeking this by private investigation is a common occurrence for both genders. Women tend to be more upfront, however, in this pursuit of information but will always insist that their matters are handled in a private and confidential manner. The opposite gender tends to act in a more emotionless or distant manner, often giving the impression that they are “just testing out” a theory, as if there should really be nothing to find. Pride tends to be more powerful in men than their ability to see what the truth may really be. Infidelity is not easy to accept by any means but the male ego makes this even more challenging.

Peace of Mind

In most cases, our clients are rarely only looking for the truth because the truth may not be easy to hear. What we’ve found that our clients really want is the comfort that comes with peace of mind. This is closely followed by the need for closure when a person is able to consciously make a decision because they have been provided with enough information to make sense of things.
There are two ways to get peace of mind when investigating a suspected cheating spouse. In some
cases, the evidence can be physically presented and clearly documented to allow a client to make a
decision and move on with their life. There are other cases, however, where the evidence is ambiguous and requires surveillance investigations to make things clear. Paranoia can also affect judgement where a client may insist that they know beyond a shadow of a doubt that their partner is not being faithful and that what they are seeing is real. In these cases, we realize that what they are really reaching out to us for is peace of mind to end their misery and provide the closure they need.

True Story

Two (2) years of confusion and pain was ended for one client with only four (4) weeks of investigation. Following the reveal, she later called to report that she can now sleep and drive to work in peace. She no longer faces anxiety while around the wheel because the person she suspected to be having an affair with her husband drove the same make and colour vehicle as her spouse. After intensive investigations backed by surveillance, her husband was found to be innocent on all accounts except for a naughty little gambling habit he developed. Though he tried to hide it, his gambling days are over thanks to the expert skills of the team at Valiant Private Investigators.

Staging your own stakeouts may not be such a good idea and this client would agree that you will soon grow frustrated, as she did, after failing to find enough evidence, leaving her in misery. Don’t make the same mistake, call Valiant Private Investigators today to get the peace of mind you need because “we solve what others can’t.”
