When you have to face the unfortunate reality of having to hire a private investigator for cheating spouse investigations, please call us for your free consultation as we are the experts in this field of investigation.

Below are some case studies of clients that hired us to help them uncover the truth.

Case study 1.

A gentleman called our office for help with a cheating spouse investigation in relation to his long standing wife of 11 years. The gentleman in question had pondered over the option to hire a private investigator for cheating spouse for many months and had finally built up the courage to take the step and call us. It transpired that he had called other agencies before calling us but was faced with an abrupt and rude response. (Not something one would expect when looking for help)

However, after speaking with the client for approximately 45 minutes we had established the complete picture and advised the client how we could help and obtain the evidence he needed to confirm or refute his cheating spouse suspicions.

As there were children involved the evidence had to be 100% concrete to enable the client to move on. Our recommendations were taken on board by the client and the investigation was successful.

We had the subject under observation for a period of five days and the cost of this investigation was £1800.00

Hiring a private investigator

Case Study 2

Client brief

The client contacted our private investigator agency to discuss his serious concerns regarding the suspicious behavior of his partner. The client wanted to hire a private investigator for cheating spouse and went on to explain that his partner’s behavior had changed and her behavior was not normal. She was demonstrating the following traits:

  • She was away from home for long periods of time and very vague about where she had been.
  • Her phone was either switched off or she wouldn’t answer the phone when she was away from home.
  • Her passwords had changed on her phone, tablet and laptop.
  • She would keep her phone with her where ever she went around the flat.
  • She was always flying away around Europe with friends that the client had never heard off.

Clients Instructions

We were instructed to place his partner under surveillance for a period of 12 hours a day, for 7 days.  The movements of the subject under investigation would be monitored, photographed and recorded for the duration of the surveillance and the finding presented to the client in a Surveillance report.

Investigation Outcome

Day 1 – The subject was followed by our team of private investigators from her place of residence in Knightsbridge. Nothing untoward was witnessed by our Investigators as the subject spent most of her day shopping and dining out with friends.

Day 2 – Our private investigators are outside the subjects home at 07:00 and awaiting her exit from her place of residence. The subject was followed to Heathrow airport. We had no early indications that the subject had any plans to leave the country. After liaising with the client we received some intelligence to suggest that she may be flying to Germany but nothing was concrete. Our investigators followed the subject to the check-in desk and confirmed that she was indeed flying to Munich. With no time to waste, we deployed two of our private investigators onto the same flight for Munich and also contacted our counterparts in Germany to make arrangements for the arrival of the subject and our Investigators.

On arrival at Munich Airport, our private investigators were met by our German counterparts and the surveillance continued. She was met by a young German male showing public signs of affection and everything was recorded. Over the next few days the subject was placed under surveillance and a substantial amount of intelligence was obtained that would suggest that the subject was in an intimate relationship with the German male.

The irrefutable intelligence obtained was presented to the client in a final surveillance report with time and date stamped photographs and covert video footage.

Dear John,

I should like to express my thanks for the quality of service, provided at short notice, by your team over the last few days. John picked up and ran with a piece of surveillance I asked him to carry out about the middle of the week. Even when things went pear shaped he persevered and has, as result managed to produce a favourable outcome against quite steep odds, whilst staying focused and professional the whole time. I have been impressed so please express my thanks to him.

“From the initial enquiry through to completion of the appointment, PUIK delivered an outstanding service providing clear and direct advice and support in a difficult situation that I found myself in.

Above and beyond the call of the professional service they provided, the investigator assigned to my case Osman supported me through a challenging period with friendship and advise akin to that of a dearly trusted friend. This had a profound effect on me and I realised the depth of understanding and skill that the team at PUIK have.

Excellent service and I would have no hesitation in recommending PUIK to anyone who finds that they require the specialist advise and services they offer.”
