Cheating investigation FAQ

Cheating investigation questions and answers

Suspecting that your wife, husband or partner is cheating on you is a heart wrenching time. If you’re considering hiring a private investigator, this quick guide will help answers some of your questions.

Are there any signs that my spouse might be cheating?

There are many different signs that could point towards infidelity. Common signs we see include a husband or wife looking after their appearance more, being protective with their phone, starting arguments or being extra nice, or working longer hours. Of course, these behaviours are not proof, but they can be warning signs.

How do you actually conduct a cheating investigation?

The first step is to obtain a brief on the person of interest. This includes a photo, why the customer is suspicious, and any other information that may be useful. Each case is different and involves different investigation techniques, but some of the methods we use include following people, surveillance, and taking video and photographs.

Will my spouse find out they are being investigated?

No, Melbourne Investigations will never disclose or make a person aware that they are being investigated – before, during or after the investigation. However, it’s also important that the customer does not give information away to the suspected partner, either intentionally or unintentionally. Showing signs of emotional weakness or anger, or questioning their movements, can make the cheating partner more careful and possibly ruin the chance for a successful investigation.

How long does it take to catch a cheater?

Every cheating investigation case presents different obstacles and amounts of information available. No private investigator can guarantee a set time frame to obtain particular evidence. It’s best to contact Melbourne Investigations to discuss the particulars of your case so that we can advise you directly.

How much does a cheating investigation cost?

The cost of an adultery investigation depends on several things. Before beginning the investigation, we will consider the expected hours worked, number of investigators on the case, and what services will be required. See this page for more information:
