Cheating partner investigation? Divorce?

Private detective shouldn’t be perceived as a last resort, we are the go-to resource for cheating partner investigations. And if there is one thing that our substantial caseload tells us, it’s that monogamy is becoming rarer over time. Bad news for hopeless romantics.

Did you know that:

  • Almost 80% of men and 70% of women confessed in a recent survey that they had cheated on a partner at least once.
  • Over 20% of divorces state infidelity as the cause.
  • In 2007, an article in The Guardian asserted that private investigators were hired in over 50% of Britain’s divorce cases. In the years since this rate has risen sharply.
  • Social media is cheating friendly.
  • Long commutes to and from work are a key factor in starting an affair.
  • 57% of cheaters have slept with their spouse and their lover on the same day.
  • Women are almost as likely to cheat as men.

Case study:

Clive suspected that Charlotte was cheating after six years together. She had become unusually secretive and was spending a lot of money on new clothes, shoes and make-up. He couldn’t reach her as regularly by text or e-mail. His instincts told him that something was very wrong. We took his case on, motivated to secure him facts so that he could decide what to do about his relationship, good or bad.

We placed a GPS vehicle tracking device on Charlotte’s car which recorded journeys, locations and speeds and how long the vehicle stopped for, with an accuracy of 5 metres. Our cheating partners investigation team also carried out surveillance, logged her working hours and where she was going instead of home. Video and photo evidence in high definition left no room for doubt.

Charlotte was having an affair with a work colleague that Clive identified as his long term friend.

The affair ended but the trust was shattered. Clive and Charlotte separated within a couple of months.

There are 5 legitimate reasons to start divorce proceedings:

  1. Adultery.
  2. Unreasonable behaviour.
  3. Desertion.
  4. You’ve lived apart for 2 years – Spouse must agree.
  5. You’ve lived apart for 5 years – Spouse does not need to agree to divorce.


A cheating partner investigation establishes the truth and the law recognises the act of adultery as sexual intercourse between a man and a woman. Investigators obviously don’t get that close but reasonable conclusions can be drawn. You can’t give adultery as the reason for divorce if you lived together as a couple for 6 months after you learned about the adultery.

Unreasonable behaviour

When your spouse has behaved in such a way that you cannot be expected to cohabit with them. This could be domestic or psychological abuse or addiction.


Your spouse has left you in one of these circumstances:

Without your agreement/without a good reason.


You’ve lived apart for more than 2 years in the last 2.5.

If you have cohabited for up to a total of 6 months in this period this is still classed as desertion.
