Cheating Partner

Do you suspect your partner is cheating on you? No More Lies!

We understand this is a very difficult and emotional time for you. We also understand how important it is to know the truth.

First and foremost, if you haven’t already, NEVER CONFRONT A SUSPECTED CHEATER! This will only cause them to be sneakier, and therefore more difficult to catch.

We are professional investigators and have the experience, knowledge, equipment, and know-how to catch any cheater.

Leave the investigating up to us and trust your instincts and intuition.

By using discreet methods of investigation that have been developed with over 24 years of experience, East Coast Investigations can confidentially determine if your partner is being unfaithful and get you the much-needed evidence that will not only provide you with the peace of mind you deserve, but also help you to decide whether or not to pursue divorce, increase your chances for alimony, and help with child custody litigation in the court systems of New York State.

We can also refer you to an attorney, should you decide you need one based on our results.

If nothing else, our evidence will give you the confidence and peace of mind to make an educated decision in which direction to go with your life and current relationship. There is nothing worse than constantly being lied to.

Once it is determined with whom your partner is cheating, we offer full background services on that individual. We can tell you if s/he is married, has children, has a criminal history, where s/he works, what s/he drives, etc. Should you decide to litigate your case, we can also serve this individual, forcing them to appear in court and answer to our evidence.

Not Sure what you are looking for?

The following are red flags that we have collected from our clients and other various sources to help you determine whether you need to seek the professional help of East Coast Investigations regarding a cheating partner.

Never confront a suspected cheater. This will only cause them to be more careful and make them more difficult to catch. It is imperative that neither you nor your family, friends, or co-workers try to obtain answers on your own. You could be charged with stalking and/or jeopardize your entire case. Leave the investigating up to East Coast Investigations.

It is important to remember that although these may be obvious signs of a cheating partner, there are also factors in our everyday life that could lead to some of these same red flags, such as drug use, gambling problems, work overload, heavy stress, etc. The following is to be used as a starting point only. Then it is up to you to hire East Coast Investigations to find out what is really going on.

  • Your intuition (gut feeling) tells you that something is not right.
  • You find intimate apparel or other small gift-type items that are meant for someone else.

  • When he or she has worn the same fragrance for years, and suddenly they are wearing something new and wearing MUCH more than usual.

Uncomfortable Around You:

  • When your mutual friends start acting strangely toward you, because they either know about the cheating or have been told stories about what a horrible partner you are.
