An asset search can be conducted by private investigators to reveal valuable information and potential issues attached to a property. This process can be useful to attorneys when doing their due diligence for clients, settling civil cases, collecting debts, and assisting in financial clarity for family attorneys and those going through divorces or child custody and support cases. Assets are also a huge component in settlement agreements during litigation for personal injury and motor vehicle cases.
Private investigators can investigate an individual’s assets by utilizing background checks, computer forensics, surveillance, and other financial investigations to collect assets. Our Connecticut private investigators for lawyers at Advanced Investigations can use our professional experience to discover evidence of fraud, fake names, hidden assets, or multiple judgments on the same lawsuit.

When are asset searches done?
Asset searches are often completed in pre-litigation investigations to gain leverage when negotiating settlements. Attorneys will have an idea of what amount of assets and income exists and could be seized after settling a case. Probate attorneys may also request asset searches when working with administrators of estates to find unknown bank accounts or assets such as stocks and bonds, bank statements, property titles, insurance policies, debts, bills, deeds, credit cards, medical bills, mortgages, personal loans, and more. This information can be searched and obtained, if in existence, by our private investigating team.
What information can be found in an asset search?
The type of information sought after will differ in asset searches for individuals and corporations. When individuals need an asset search for legal matters, deeds, transactions, motor vehicle registrations, bankruptcies, liens, criminal records, tax liens, and judgments can be analyzed.
When businesses and corporations need to be looked into by lawyers, asset searches involve looking into real estate properties and deeds, corporate filings, bankruptcies, issues with taxes, evidence of embezzlement, fraud, or other white-collar crimes, employee benefit information, corporate associations, sister corporations, judgments, liens, vehicle and boat registrations, and employee finances. More general searches may include liabilities, missing persons searches, criminal records, and civil records or involvement in lawsuits.
Who may need to conduct an asset search?
There are various entities that may conduct their own asset searches to use against clients. Such entities may include the following:
- Law firms and attorneys
- Insurance agencies
- Governmental agencies
- Other individuals and agencies.
