Cheating is something none of us wants to face, unless of course you’re no longer invested emotionally in the relationship.
The crux of the matter is that you can’t get a divorce without a really valid reason, or without proof of the reason for your petition to divorce.
In the case of a cheating spouse, no court is going to accept anything less than hard facts and incontrovertible proof of the infidelity.
The proof is there not only to move the divorce forward, but to protect your interests financially, such as the division of assets. This is especially true where there are children involved and there is a battle for custody.
The court is not interested in what you think or feel. If you provide them with evidence that is gathered without breaking any laws, you’ll have a case that is grounded in facts.
You need to know what type of evidence you’ll have to gather, which evidence can be kept and how the evidence has to be presented in court.
This is a lot to take in on top of the immense emotional stress of facing the truth that your spouse is cheating, which is why most attorneys recommend using a private investigator to handle these realities, and to do it all the right way.
Why use a private investigator to collect evidence of cheating?
You could try a bit of detecting yourself, such as finding incriminating emails or texts, but, reading texts or emails that are romantic and consist of plans to spend time together, will add further agony to an already shattering experience.
You’ll need to have a really strong stomach to deal with seeing evidence of the affair with your own eyes.
Besides which, would you really be able to manage the emotional stress without letting your spouse know that you’re gathering evidence?

What type of evidence gathering can undermine your case?
If you interview a private investigator and they offer to use underhanded tactics to gather the evidence of cheating, bow out gracefully and find an investigator with a good reputation.
A private investigator may not wiretap anyone’s phone, trespass on private property or attach a GPS tracking device onto any car other than the one owned by their client.
