It can be a difficult and painful experience when you find yourself doubting the fidelity of a spouse. You feel a burning desire to get to the truth. It’s the only way to calm the nagging thoughts in your mind. Regardless of the outcome of an investigation, you will at the very least be able to move on with your life because you will have the answers you need.

To get that kind of information, PIs (private investigators) can be hired in the pursuit of an affair investigation. However, your and your spouse’s rights in affair investigations must be considered during such investigations.

To make a determination as to whether or not your spouse may be having an affair – so that it can be proved in court – a private investigator will use photos, videos, and other means of acquiring evidence. They will likely be called to testify as to the infidelity of your spouse. What’s admissible in court and what type of evidence can be obtained has specific rules that apply to them, however.

On the “Can’t Do” List

There are any number of things that a private investigator is not allowed to do. As examples, private investigators cannot do the following:

  • Obtain information that is “protected” (i.e., credit scores, phone records, financial records, bank accounts)
  • Hack into email accounts and/or social media
  • Without consent, wiretap a phone
  • S. mail tampering
  • Trespassing
  • Break local or federal laws
  • Impersonate an officer of the law
  • Depending on the state, they may not be able to operate without a private investigator’s license

Why Should You Hire a Licensed Private Investigator With Experience?

A private investigator is not an officer of the law. So, you may be wondering why, if they’re just a regular citizen, you should acquire their services. Particularly when it comes to infidelity investigations, the hiring of a private investigator has the following advantages:

  • As opposed to restrictions that law enforcement must follow, as with any regular citizen, private investigators enjoy a certain level of freedom.
  • Time is not of the essence for a private investigator. They are on the job while gathering information and conducting surveillance. They can take the time to do the job right, rather than be in a big hurry. Haste can result in making mistakes or overlooking things.
  • A good private investigator has an impressive track record. An experienced PI will know how, without being noticeable or obtrusive, to listen, watch, and get to the truth.
  • One of the most valuable assets were private investigators are concerned is anonymity. So as not to appear suspicious, someone completely anonymous and unknown to the person being investigated is the best individual to gather helpful evidence.
