Indianapolis, Indiana Cheating Spouse/Infidelity Investigators

It's an unfortunate fact of life that people sometimes stray from their marriage. If you're reading this page, you probably never thought it could happen to you. But it has. Or at least you suspect it has and you need to know. Below is what to expect should our agency be hired.

If you're asking this question, there may already be a problem. We catch the suspected spouse cheating on over 90% of the cases that we take. Is this because cheating is rampant? No.  It's because by the time someone is ready to hire a private investigator, they often already have deep-seated suspicions or they have indirect knowledge and are looking for independent corroboration.


Signs of a cheating spouse can be found all over the internet.  Here are our own, based solely on first hand experience with these types of investigations.
  1. The cheating spouse's cell phone records almost always indicate there is a problem. In the case of a male cheating, his credit card statements can also indicate a problem.
  2. The marriage is in trouble before the suspicions of an affair came up. Simply put, happy, communicative marriages do not produce affairs - unhappy or "flat" ones do.
  3. The cheating spouse has windows of time when he/she is unaccounted for.  Phone calls are not answered during this time and a later explanation of where they were is self-authenticating.
  4. The cheating spouse has a prior history of infidelity. We often see that "years ago" there was a problem that was resolved.
  5. The cheating spouse has a public "friendship" with a member of the opposite sex. They admit to being "good friends" and make no effort to hide the relationship. This way, if spotted together, they have a cover story. In reality, the relationship is sexual and often emotional, as well.
  6. There has been a "tip" from a friend, acquaintance or family member indicating that an inappropriate relationship is occurring.


The amount of time required is based on several variables including -
  1.  How often does the cheating occur?  If it's just once a month, that will be harder to detect than if it is several times a week.
  2.  How often is the investigator out?  Obviously, if we're not conducting the surveillance when the cheating occurs, we won't see it.
  3. How much proof does our client require?  It is very common that after we catch a spouse cheating, the client wants us to document a pattern by continuing the surveillance. As a general rule of thumb, we advise at least five separate periods of surveillance at different times on different days to get a feel for what is happening. Almost never is a cheating spouse caught on the first night of an investigation - patience is required. 


Proving a negative is sometimes difficult and based on opinion, not fact. Generally, if the suspected spouse has been followed several times, has had the opportunity to cheat during this time and did not, we would advise our client that there is no evidence of cheating.


It starts with a phone call where your matter is discussed in brief with our investigator. We can discuss what the investigation would entail in terms of time and expense after getting some basic facts. When a plan is agreed upon, we would require a signed contract as well as a retainer to fund the investigation.


If you define success as whether we catch the spouse cheating or we clear him or her, our success rate in the past year was 100%. We never had a case during this time where we failed to determine what was really going on. As stated above, the percentage of time when the person is caught cheating is extremely high - well over 90%.


Under Indiana and Ohio law, our investigations are required to be 100% confidential. We will be completely discreet with your situation and provide you with clear, fact-based reports on exactly what is seen during our surveillance. To the extent that video or photographs can be discreetly obtained, we will provide these as well.


The costs involved vary because every investigation varies.  Every client and their specific situation is different.  After a free initial consultation, we are able to provide our clients with an estimated cost to find the answers that they seek.

Indianapolis/Cincinnati Private Investigation - Experienced Surveillance Investigators

Often, surveillance is mistakenly considered an easy task. Surveillance is, in fact, one of the most complicated types of investigations out there. Many private investigators offer surveillance as a service. Factually, very few investigators know how to properly perform surveillance. Here is a list of factors to ask and examine before you hire a surveillance investigator.

1.  License - ask for and verify the investigator’s license. Most states require a license to operate as a private detective. States such as Indiana and Ohio require three years full time experience before one can even apply for a license.

2.  Insurance - verify the investigator has appropriate insurance that covers surveillance investigations.

3.  Equipment - ask the surveillance investigator about their surveillance vehicle and equipment. An experienced investigator will have a bank of equipment and suitable surveillance vehicles.

4.  Associations - a surveillance investigator who belongs to an association usually has more resources, more education, and more experience. Professional associations supply a surveillance investigator with networks, resources, and education.

5.  Experience - this is one of the most important questions. Ask the investigator what surveillance experience he or she has. Ask for examples of cases they have worked. Ask if they have ever lost a subject during surveillance. If an investigator tells you they have never lost someone during a surveillance, they either have no experience or are simply not telling the truth. Many things occur during a surveillance that hamper or stop the surveillance. It is impossible for any experienced surveillance investigator to not have lost a subject during surveillance.

These are just a few things to look at when considering hiring a surveillance investigator. It is equally important that you speak with the investigator. Intuition is a key element when looking into hiring a surveillance investigator. If what the investigator is offering does not sound right, it probably isn't.

Surveillance Pays Huge Dividends In Private Investigation Work - Frontline Investigations & Surveillance LLC

There is nothing a cop, prosecutor, or judge love to hear more than, "I have video."  Video evidence is indisputable.  If it's on video, it is what it is.  More and more people are starting to place video cameras on their property.  Video is a great deterrent too.  If I am thinking about robbing a home or vehicle on a particular street and I see a house with video cameras and one without, which one do you think I'm going to?  You're right, the one without video.  Video is not only a great deterrent, it's a tool law enforcement uses to solve crime.

Your small business has no camera over the register or back stock room - what is to stop your employee from taking a little here and there?  It adds up over time as recent studies have shown.  They say internal loss, meaning the associates of the store, cause more loss than that caused by non-employees.

I have a lot of belongings and enjoy them all but there is no property that comes close to the value of my children.  I do not care how long I know somebody or how much I trust someone.  If my children are left in someone else's care, I want to know what is going on.  "Nanny cams" are perfect and when placed in your home they are hidden.  If all you see is someone taking great care of your home and children - great!  Frontline Investigations & Surveillance LLC would love to report that positive outcome and give you that peace of mind.  However, if something is not going well - whether it's a person ignoring your child's cry for attention while they sit on the phone chatting, or something more serious - you need to know.  Don't wait until it's too late.  Contact us today to discuss your needs in detail.

The Costs Of Hiring A Cincinnati Private Investigator

"What?  You charge how much for surveillance?"  This is the typical response our PI agency gets when consulting with a new client.  Let's look at this question.  Is getting case closure for our clients always cheap?  No.  Are our prices fair and consistent with the industry?  Yes.  Of course we've all heard the old saying, "You get what you pay for."  Well, the truth is, you do. We would love to do surveillance and investigative work for free or next to nothing because we love what we do and enjoy helping people.  The truth is, our clients usually don't understand the costs required for our agency to do this type of work.

When performing surveillance work, most PI agencies utilize at least two investigators.  We have found this to be the most efficient and successful approach.  One car tailing a suspect puts us at a much greater risk of being spotted by our target.  There are also equipment costs and like any other business, over head, service charges, and miscellaneous expenses - daily, weekly and monthly.  Know up front that it will cost you some money to hire a private investigator but also know that you are paying for a service.  You are paying for your peace of mind and in some cases, your safety.

Let's look at a cheating spouse case as an example.  Should you or your friends follow them and conduct your own investigation and surveillance?  Well, I usually answer that with, "Am I going to let my buddy who has no experience or training remove my wisdom teeth?"  The short answer is no.  The longer answer is he is not qualified, he is not licensed, he is a liability, he is not insured, he is breaking the law and will surely cost me more money and headache down the road.  It may seem like an extreme analogy but it's a valid one never the less.

Our agency will work with you.  We want to help you but you should be aware that it will cost you some money because it costs us money to help you.  Don't expect to be over charged or hit with outrageous costs but expect to pay for a service at the going rate within the industry.  Our investigators did not get into this business solely for the money.  In fact, remembering our early conversations when discussing opening the company, most of us were talking about our talents, background, skills, experience and sincere interest in being a productive team that provided honest and top notch customer service. We have achieved that. We stand behind that, take pride in that, and use that as our motivator.  We are doing what we love and we are among the best that do it.  Is it free?  No.  Is it reasonable?  No question.  We understand the cost concerns to our clients but we believe in open doors and straight forward conversations.  Contact us and see that for yourself.  Frontline Investigations & Surveillance LLC - leading you to the answers.

Cheating Spouse Quiz - Indianapolis & Cincinnati Private Investigators

Sometimes people in a marriage deliberately refuse to face the truth, especially if they are getting mixed signals that their spouses are cheating. People act a certain way, and show some degree of guilt when they have been doing something they are not supposed to be doing. If you are still iffy about the secretiveness and the sudden change your spouse's lifestyle patterns and overall attitude, take the ultimate five-point cheating spouse quiz.

A - Always   B - Sometimes   C - Rarely   D - Never

  1. Does he or she change clothes often and is suddenly obsessed about physical appearance?
  2. Does he or she become overly secretive and defensive over credit card, phone bills, wallets, phones and underwear drawers?
  3. Has he or she been spending more time at the office, saying he is working late or having late client dinners?
  4. Has your once sizzling sex life been reduced to cold, mechanical sex that occurs once in a blue moon?
  5. Does he or she become overly possessive, accusatory and picks fights out of impulse and then storms out of the house?

If you have answered mostly A and B, you are living with a cheater. Observe your spouse's hygiene habits carefully. They may be wearing the cologne/perfume you gave them before they leave for work in the morning, then come home smelling of something completely different. Cheating spouses hide away bills that contain information such as frequently dialed numbers, or credit card bills that reveal gifts, dinner dates and hotel bills you did not even know about. Guilty spouses hide away fancy lingerie or underwear (that they don't normally wear), and condoms (which they do not normally use with you).

Why has he or she been staying up late to work, when you discover from his or her colleagues that they have not? If your spouse is cheating on you, they will most likely not want to have sex with you, out of guilt that they may be being unfaithful to their significant others. Cheating spouses become accusatory and question your faithfulness to them out of subconscious guilt. (They are doing it, so they know you could be doing it too.) Also, they deliberately make a fuss out of anything and everything so they can have an excuse to get out of the house to talk to or see their significant other.

Although this cheating spouse quiz works 99% of the time, it is still a good idea to confront your spouse non-judgmentally, and if it is still denial, you will have to resort to more definitive measures to catch him or her off guard, such as hiring an private investigator.
Did you take this cheating spouse quiz and realize you might be living with a cheater? The best thing you can do right now is get evidence and proof before you confront your spouse. Here is what you need to do today - contact our agency and schedule a free consultation with one of our investigators.
