Ten Signs Your Partner Is Cheating On You

1. Changing attitude toward your relationship: more argumentative, critical, distant, less affectionate, increased need for “space.”

2. Unexplained absences: frequently staying late at work, spending more time "with friends," pursuing a new hobby during evenings and weekends, frequently running lengthy errands.

3. Increase in personal expenses: spends more money, credit card spending increases.

4. Changing phone use patterns: spends more time on the phone, anxious to be the first to answer the phone, mysterious incoming calls — hang ups or "wrong numbers," suddenly needs a new cell phone.

5. Greater attention to personal appearance: begins a crash diet or exercise program, gets a trendy new wardrobe, new fragrance or hair style.

6. Added interest in the mail: wants to be the one who gets the mail — wants to limit your access to phone bills, bank and credit card statements, and personal letters they get.

7. Articles of unknown origin: slips of paper with names and phone numbers; dates, times, locations stashed in their pockets; matchbooks from unknown bars and restaurants.

8. Changing sex drive: decreased interest in sex — more aggressive and/or hostile during sex and less tender/romantic; newfound knowledge regarding unexplored techniques or positions.

9. Mysterious bite marks, bruises, scratches: can't explain how "that got there.”

10. Unexplained odor or stain: comes home smelling of cologne / perfume that is clearly not theirs; lipstick on his shirt collar.

Infidelity & Cheating Spouse Investigations

Many private investigators don't set out intending to perform infidelity investigations, but often it inevitably happens. All private investigators at one time or another receive calls to perform infidelity investigations. Even if private investigators don't offer infidelity and cheating spouse investigations, they receive calls to perform such work. It just happens. Some private investigators decline to do such work, but most say yes. Since there are periods of time when a private investigator doesn't have at least one client, it can be foolish to turn down the money.

Those seeking divorce will often hire a private investigator to perform surveillance on their spouse not just if they suspect he or she may be cheating, but also when they suspect he or she may be leading a double life. People leading a double life occurs more often than you may think.

Even though adultery isn't a reason needed to file for divorce anymore in most states because of 'no fault' divorce laws, the spouse of a suspected cheater will often still hire a private investigator to investigate whether or not their spouse is cheating. They want to know if their suspicions are true.

There are other reasons to hire a private investigator to perform surveillance that are closely related to infidelity and cheating spouse investigations such as abuse cases and child custody cases. Family law cases often require an investigator to perform surveillance involving suspected child abuse or neglect and abuse of the elderly. Sadly, sometimes our loved ones become victims of abuse.
