Is Your Spouse Having an Affair in Lockdown?

If you suspect your partner may be cheating during lockdown, you’re probably right. Affairs in lockdown can be more challenging, so pay attention to subtle changes in your spouse.

  • Changes in personality: guilt often manifests as anger or frustration. Cheater’s guilt may also cause your spouse to over-compensate with increased attentiveness and affection.
  • Changes in behaviour: with less personal space to hide in, your partner may become more active on text apps such as WhatsApp, leave the room to use their phone, close doors, change social media passwords and delete messages or internet browsing history.
  • Changes in habits: take note of renewed interests in grooming, smelling nice, exercise or eating habits. They may also change their taste in music or tv channels.
  • Excuses to leave home: enjoying long walks alone, drives to find ‘me-time’ or frequent trips to the supermarket can easily create opportunities for intimacy elsewhere.

Knowing the truth is the first step towards looking after your own safety and wellbeing.

Owl Investigations is here to help you find answers to your nagging questions, providing essential tools to uncover what’s really going on with discreet private investigator services for complete peace of mind.

Case Study

Until now, Hannah and her husband Chris had led relatively separate lives. Lockdown forced them to spend significantly more time together with both partners unexpectedly working from home. Hannah’s elderly mum was also temporarily living with them during lockdown, placing further strain on the family home.

Hannah noticed changes in Chris so she got in touch with Owl Investigations to look into a potential affair.

Chris, usually mild and easy-going, had become frequently angry and often frustrated at home. Whenever Hannah tried to talk to him, Chris became defensive claiming he needed time to himself. With each argument Chris took a long drive to cool off, spending hours away from home, returning much later in a friendlier, more attentive mood. This quickly evolved into another argument that Hannah felt was becoming a pattern.

She noticed too that he was seldom away from his phone, placing it face down whenever she was around. She discovered his social media passwords had changed and found no record of his browsing history on their shared computer.

When Hannah called Owl Investigations, she had no real evidence of an affair and was concerned about herself being paranoid or going crazy in lockdown.

Our team at Owl Investigations listened carefully to Hannah’s concerns and placed discreet surveillance on Chris. Using a GPS vehicle tracker and two surveillance agents working separately in isolation, we captured photo and video evidence of Chris having an affair with their long-term friend.

Hannah was extremely relieved to learn the truth and has moved in with her mum where they are both safe and well. Although difficult to hear, learning of Chris’s betrayal and his willingness to put her family at a significant health risk has given Hannah the strength she needed to leave her unhappy marriage with complete peace of mind. 



Owl Investigations – BLOG – Bug Sweeping: Who Is Listening To Your Conversations?

While bug sweeping services and corporate espionage may seem something all the famous action movies are made of, bug sweeping is actually something you may want to consider in your home or business. Espionage is a very real threat in this day and age, and it is not just business premises that are prime targets.

Listening bugs are easy to get hold of now. You can purchase them in a wide range of High Street stores, but also online. They are tiny in size and easy to install. This means you could have one anywhere in your home, business or car without having any idea. It’s a disturbing thought, but can often put your mind at rest or make sense of things when it seems a competitor seems to know your next move or your ex-partner seems to be wherever you are, just by ‘coincidence’.

When there are bugs in your home, but you don’t know, it can feel like you are paranoid or going mad. Yet when you have a bug sweeping service in your home, business or car, your mind is at rest. You weren’t going crazy after all. Someone could hijack your own technology and use it to relay confidential information. Without a bug sweeping service, you would never know!

If you think there may be bugs in your home the first thing to do is remove yourself from your premises. Then call in the bug sweepers here at Owl Investigations. We will run a complete, thorough and comprehensive bug sweep of your home, business or car.

While waiting for the bug sweeping to take place we would recommend you avoid using your landline or mobile phone. If possible use a friend’s phone, out of your house, or use a public payphone.

Anyone can become a victim of bugging. It could be a business competitor, an ex-spouse or a colleague for example. If you think your home is bugged, call out our bug sweepers now.

Can A Private Detective Help Me Trace Debtors?

Every year reports show that businesses, landlords and councils are writing off millions pounds of debt. This occurs when debtors just seem to disappear. Sometimes this is a midnight flit and while they are there one day, they are completely gone the next day and there seems to be no way of finding them.

But is there a way that a private detective can help trace debtors?

In short, yes!

When it comes to collecting outstanding debts, it’s not quite as simple as just turning up on someone’s door and asking for the money. You must know their official residential address or business address. Notice must then be given to them of enforcement action. Otherwise the person that owes money can claim they had no awareness of this and notice was never received.

Leeds Investigators

This is essential information needed by the High Court Enforcement Officers or Debt Collectors. This is also the information that a private detective can help you get.

All you need to do is call a professional private detective, like the team here at Owl Investigations, and ask about their debtor tracing service. They will speak to you and take all the details you have for the debtor. This information and background knowledge will be used to find the address and location of the debtor.

You will then be provided with the official resident address and / or business address so notice can be sent, followed by debt collectors if no action is taken by the debtor.

Here at Owl Investigations we go much further that other debt tracing agencies. We use the most sophisticated and up to date technology and software to trace the debtor you are looking for. Our team of debtor tracers will search numerous databases and match your debtors’ details to addresses, phone numbers and emails to ensure you have all the proof needed to collect your debt.

We will then dig to the next level and find associated people such as family members, business partners or people living with the debtor. We can also collect financial information of your debtor to see if they have the ability to pay. This information will ensure that you can make an informed decision of chasing your debtor for payment and how long it could take to get your money paid back to you.

Here to Help – Owl Investigations

You have worked hard for your money. Here at Owl Investigations we don’t believe people should be able to take your hard-earned cash and walk away. This is why we offer a debtor tracing service to help you get your money back.

Contact our debtor tracing team now to see how we can help you.

Co-habitation Investigations

Do you need a co-habitation investigation?

What is a co-habitation investigation?

Co-habitation investigations are required for two primary reasons:

  1. When an ex-partner is suspected of claiming financial support although they have a new live in partner and are therefore ineligible for these payments. This is fraud and includes the fair share of assets, CSA claims, housing benefits.
  2. New partner background checks and thorough investigations look at the new person in the home environment and ascertain whether your children are safe in their company.

If you believe that your ex-partner could be exploiting you financially, you could be correct. Owl Investigations handles numerous co-habitation investigations each year and we’ve witnessed the increase in occasions when fraud is being perpetrated as exes continue to claim support despite a change in circumstances. When an ex isn’t playing fair, why should they be allowed to live from your earnings? Child maintenance isn’t an issue, you’re happy to pay that and to ensure that your offspring have the best life possible.

Who is the new person in the family home? Are they honest, principled and worthy of being around your children? You obviously want to know that your children are safe at all times.

Suspicions don’t help you sleep at night or pay your bills. Choose to obtain facts using professional resources.

Surveillance is a fundamental tool in co-habitation investigations and although it looks simple enough to the uninitiated, it is a specialist field. Could you ask questions in the local area or watch a property over days and weeks to secure the truth without appearing suspicious or betraying confidentiality?  

Owl Investigations Introduction

When is spousal maintenance paid?

According to the Money Advice Service when a relationship breaks down there are two options, a clean break and a lump sum payment, or financial support is agreed to the party who cannot support themselves without assistance. The amount varies according to circumstances including how much you need to live, income in possession already and potential earnings.

Did you know that if co-habitation circumstances do not alter and the union was a long one, the spousal support can last until death? When an ex-partner is unable to work, it can be paid for life. However, if the marriage lasts for less than five years, spousal maintenance may not be appropriate or a short term maintenance called a term order may be instigated. 

The financial support ceases when:

  • The person receiving spousal maintenance remarries or enters another civil partnership.
  • The agreed payment term ends.
  • Either you or the ex-partner passes away and there is no life insurance to continue payments.

Maintenance doesn’t always stop if the ex-partner lives with a new partner without marrying or entering a civil partnership, although this can be a reason for the person paying the sum to ask for a review.  

If you feel that one of Owl Investigations co-habitation investigations would prove beneficial, why not contact us today?
