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 Investigation

Cheating Spouse Private Investigator | Seattle, WA

Is Your Husband or Wife Cheating?

Even thinking that your spouse may be cheating is a difficult and painful thought, and unfortunately, if you have suspicions that your spouse is unfaithful, you may be right.

According to statistics, wives who suspect their husbands of cheating are correct 80% of the time, while husbands who suspect their wives of cheating are correct 60% of the time. Research suggests that approximately 60 percent of men and 50 percent of women will cheat at least once in their marriage. Despite the prevalence of cheating, 70 percent of married women and 54 percent of married men do not know about their spouse's infidelity.

These statistics do not even include nontraditional forms of infidelity, although these forms exist. It is estimated that 40 million Americans have virtual encounters of a sexual nature on the internet seeking out so-called "emotional affairs."

Most common signs of cheating:

  1. Changes in intimacy: A distinct increase or decrease in intimacy and affection levels or sexual preferences may hint indicate infidelity.
  2. Suspicious phone habits: A spouse that hides his or her phone or is secretive about their call logs and text messages may be cheating.
  3. Changes in appearance: A marked change in style of dress, intimate wear, and/or personal hygiene can be a clue.
  4. Suspicious internet use: Much like phone habits, a cheating spouse may be overly secretive when it comes to their browser history and general internet and computer habits.
  5. Changes in work routine: It may seem like a cliche but a husband or wife that suddenly needs to “work late” or “go to a conference” frequently is a sign of infidelity.
  6. Changes in bathing habits: A spouse that showers right when they get home, switches cologne or perfume or changes their grooming habits can be a sign of cheating.

What Does An Infidelity Investigation Involve?

Investigations will vary based upon your needs and the private investigator conducting the investigation. However, many times an investigation to catch a catching spouse may include:
  • Surveillance  A private investigator can watch your spouse through advanced surveillance methods to make sure that you have the evidence you need. Rather than relying on hearsay or your own suspicions, an investigator can help you know.
  • Evidence gathering  Seeing a cheating spouse caught on film is not pleasant, but if an investigator uncovers proof of infidelity, such evidence may help you land a better divorce settlement or can give you the tool you need to confront your mate. If a private investigator finds solid proof that your spouse is faithful, the peace of mind can help ensure that your relationship survives any suspicion.
  • Professional techniques  When you hire a professional investigator, the investigator will use professional investigative techniques to find out whether your spouse is unfaithful or not. They will have access to technology and equipment that the average person does not.

What Should I Expect from an Infidelity Investigation?

Investigations into cheating spouses can range from hours to several days. Regardless of length of time, when you talk to us about a cheating spouse, you will be treated with discretion and respect. The investigator will listen to your suspicions, take them seriously, and will ask you how you want the investigation to be shaped. You will remain in control of how the investigation proceeds and your professional investigator will investigate your spouse, on your terms, until you are completely satisfied. You will receive regular updates about the status of the investigation and only you will get to decide what to do with the information that is gathered.

Some people seek help as soon as they feel some suspicion that their spouse is cheating. Knowing for certain is important to them before they confront their partner. Others know their spouse is unfaithful and want solid evidence. If worries about your spouse are affecting your relationship or causing you stress, speaking with a private investigator can help.

For private investigation to work, you need to be willing to commit to an investigation. This means that you must be willing to speak openly with the investigator about your situation and you must be willing to find out the truth. As long as you are willing to do these things, you can take control of your situation.

Seattle Cheating Spouse Investigations

Adultery is extremely hurtful, and often very hard to recover from. The research on adultery statistics can vary, but in general more than 50% of all marriages will be impacted by one of the spouses being unfaithful, and about one third of marriages end in divorce because of an affair. Interestingly enough, a University of Washington study found that people who earned $75,000 or more per year were 1.5 times more likely to have had extramarital sex than those earning less than $30,000. And men are no longer necessarily the ones committing the adultery. In recent years an equal number of women have been committing adultery.

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.

Washington State is a "no fault" state, which means that either party can file for divorce without providing proof of a specific cause, such as adultery. Instead, the filing party only has to state that the marriage is "irretrievably broken." Because adultery is not taken into consideration in a Washington State divorce, it does not impact the parenting plan or divorce settlement. Judges write alimony orders without regard to misconduct. This means that the family court cannot consider any kind of fault or marital misconduct, including adultery, when it makes decisions about alimony.

Recording Conversations

Each state maintains their own laws concerning recording conversations. You may hear the term "one-party consent" or you may hear the term "two party" consent. In the State of Washington, all parties must consent to being recorded. In addition, under federal laws, you cannot surreptitiously place a bug or any recording device on a person, their cellular phone; in their home, car, office etc., to secretly record a conversation between people who have not consented. Violating these laws not only do nothing to help your case, but these laws actually expose you to the risk of criminal prosecution, as well also potentially give an injured party(s) the ability to file a civil claim for money damages against you.

Bottom Line: Do Not Record Conversations. It could potentially land you in jail and/or court owing your spouses lover money because they sued you.


Although spousal surveillance by a private investigator is one of the most frequently used tools for uncovering infidelity, each case comes with its own set of circumstances and can call for different measures.

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.
