Adultery & Infidelity
IS MY PARTNER CHEATING?
If you suspect your spouse or partner of cheating, Cat’s Eye Private Investigations can help you get the answers you need. You may have noticed some of these common signs of cheating in your partner:
- Seems distant or disconnected and/or sexually disinterested
- Lies more frequently
- Goes out more frequently than usual, and more often without me
- Keeps a close watch on their cellular phone and/ or appears to delete text and voice messages frequently
- Has whereabouts you cannot account for at times
- Takes more time than expected to return home from work or when going out
- Makes unusual purchases, or you have found receipts from locations or times where you were not together
- Has made recent changes to their appearance or exercise habits (e.g., haircut, clothes, going to the gym more often)
- Receives calls or text messages from strange numbers or people you don’t recognize
- Behaves defensively when asked about their whereabouts or behavior
- Uses the computer or Internet more frequently or secretly
Even if you only have a “feeling” that something is wrong in your relationship, you deserve the truth and peace of mind to put your worries at ease. But confronting your partner without evidence can lead to even more problems. Cat’s Eye Private Investigations can obtain proof for you that will not only provide you with peace of mind, but also with quality investigative reports that are legally-admissible court evidence, should you need it.
HOW DO WE FIND OUT THE TRUTH?
The best way to determine whether your partner is cheating on you is to conduct surveillance on them when they are away from you. First, we will work with you to establish an investigative plan that meets the needs of your unique situation, planning surveillance at the most opportune time in order to most efficiently and effectively conduct the investigation. Our investigators will follow your partner and obtain videotape footage of their activities and any associates. You will receive the footage on a video CD at the close of the case that, along with the investigative report, serves as an accurate and clear representation of what occurred during surveillance. You will almost feel as though you were there yourself.
WHAT KIND OF EVIDENCE WILL WE OBTAIN?
The majority of cheaters are very discreet, and it is rare for them to be caught “in the act.” However, since proof of an affair is so hard to obtain, in most cases the court only requires circumstantial proof of adultery, evidence of “opportunity and “inclination” to engage in an affair.
Evidence of “opportunity” includes observing and/or documenting parties as they enter a home, vehicle, hotel room, or other location where they could be alone, and then observing them as they emerge together later. For example, observing a man enter a female’s residence only to emerge in the morning, after his vehicle remained there through the night, indicates an “overnight stay” and is clear evidence of opportunity for an affair. To show “inclination,” evidence might include small displays of affection, such as kissing, holding hands, standing closely together, hugging, or any other romantic behavior. Emails, phone calls, and receipts can also be considered evidence of inclination, and along with opportunity, it may be enough to prove adultery or infidelity.
SHOULD I CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY?
If you intend to take the matter to court, we advise that you do consult with an attorney, who can guide you in the right direction with regard to your goals in the courtroom. For example, you should never allow a friend or relative to intervene on your behalf and investigate on their own, not only because it is dangerous, but also because evidence obtained illegally cannot be used in court. All evidence obtained by Cat’s Eye Private Investigations will be obtained legally, so your case in court, should you choose that route, will not be undermined. Even more, our investigative reports are written to a high-quality legal standard that is admissible in a court of law. If needed, our investigators are also available to testify on your behalf to any activity they may have witnessed during surveillance. Consulting with an attorney is a good way to protect yourself and your family, and ensure that your case goes as smoothly as possible. If you would like, Cat’s Eye Private Investigations will be glad to provide you with some names of family attorneys that can guide you through the difficult process.

BUSINESS TRIP SURVEILLANCE
Too often, cheating occurs while one partner is away on a business trip or a vacation with friends, and there is no better opportunity for a cheater to engage in adultery. We are available and skilled in the art of conducting surveillance on those cheaters who travel long distances away from the home. Distance between you and your spouse will cause them to "let down their guard" and become relaxed, and in these situations we have an ideal opportunity to obtain proof of infidelity. Call us today at (919) 878-9988 to speak with an investigator and find out how we can help!
CHILD CUSTODY INVESTIGATIONS
With divorce, children are the primary concern, and child custody issues are often the reason for initiating an investigation. In some cases, the court-appointed primary custodian may not be the best choice for the child, for reasons such as inappropriate or illegal activities and/or behaviors that are not suitable. Or, your ex-spouse might begin dating an individual who has a criminal record, including a sexual assault or other criminal conviction. Perhaps your ex-spouse makes a habit of dropping your child off at a babysitter so he or she can go out and socialize, or even worse, your ex-spouse may be abusing your child.
If you choose to challenge court-ordered child custody matters, it is your duty to prove your case; the more evidence that you have, the more successful you will likely be, and Cat’s Eye Private Investigations can help you build a case that will assist you in showing the courts why you deserve custody of your child. With child custody cases, you must show "patterns" and as such the case may take some time to build a case that is compelling and convincing. The courts generally are not interested in an "isolated incident" of your ex-spouse engaging in activities or behaviors that are inappropriate. However, we will be there with you along the way with the skills, experience and support to help you build a case that can win you custody of the child.
In all domestic matters, Cat’s Eye Private Investigations has the resources and knowledge to help you obtain evidence of your suspicions, arming you with the tools to empower yourself and take back what is rightfully yours. Call us now at (919) 878-9988 to speak with an investigator.
