Private Investigator in Michigan (MI)

Is your spouse cheating?

Do you suspect your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife is cheating? Maybe you’ve had this suspicion for days, weeks, months or even years.  Something is off between you and your spouse, and you’re beginning to wonder if they may be cheating. You tell yourself that other people have affairs, but it can't happen to you. You convince yourself that you’re just being paranoid and you’re crazy for thinking like that! But that nagging feeling or constant doubt lingers in your head.

If you find yourself wanting to  hire a private investigator, your suspicions are probably right. Most people need to see physical evidence such as pictures or video in order for them to believe it. This then allows them to end then end the relationship without feeling remorse.

There are a variety of ways we can help you get the answers; this can include  installing hidden cameras, surveillance,  live GPS trackers on a vehicle, data recovery on a computer or cell phone and bugging your home or vehicles. We can follow your significant other on a girls or boys night out, before or after work, at the gym, while you're away or any other time you need us to. We will develop  an investigation that will deliver you the results you need. 


We assist individuals, employers, law firms, insurance companies and corporations by offering a large variety of investigative services. We customize each investigation to your specific needs.

We are a full service investigation agency licensed in Michigan under Public Act 285 of 1965.
