Private Investigator Questions
Would you ever hire a private investigator to spy on your spouse if you suspected them of cheating?
That is one of the most important questions that we ask our clients. For this purpose, we have recently surveyed 500 individuals between the ages of 18 and over 65 across all four corners of the United States.
We have received surprising results.
Out of the total respondents, 50.5% were female and 49.5% were male. The general consensus was “Disagree” for the majority of both female (33.7%) and male (31.1%) responders, closely followed by “Unsure”.
The highest response rate by far is attributed to people aged 25-34 (24.9%), followed by people aged 45-54 (19.7%). In addition, individuals from the South make up the bulk of total responders (30.2%), followed by those from the Midwest (27.6%), West (27.2%) and Northeast (14.9%).
You might be wondering what all of these statistics mean. They have, in fact, provided answers to common questions that many men and women ask when in doubt about their partner’s fidelity. The two most common questions are as follows:
Should I hire a private investigator?
The primary purpose of hiring a private investigator is to confirm or refute suspicions about a cheating spouse. Anything is better than living with uncertainty, particularly considering that most suspicions are proven true, as discussed on our Marital Infidelity page. However, it is also important to consider the possibility that your suspicions may, in fact, be false: The consequences of needlessly invading a spouse’s privacy is often behind the decision to not investigate at all.
For this reason, we strongly recommend that you do not perform any covert surveillance on your own and leave the investigation to a trained professional. Our job is to ensure that you no longer live in doubt and fear yet our investigation remains between us and the client – unless we discover incriminating evidence on which you decide to take further action.
Which states have the highest divorce rates?
As implied by our survey results, divorce rates are significantly higher in the southern part of the country, including Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, the Virginias and the Carolinas. Reasons include marriages occurring at an earlier age, fewer individuals pursuing higher education, and many more.
New York, on the other hand, is located in the Northeast where divorce rates are the lowest. However, the decision to have a professional investigate your suspicions should never be based solely on this fact. Putting your mind at ease – regardless of the result – is always worth the time and effort, and our team is dedicated to doing precisely that.
