Times When You Will Benefit From an Asset Search

Let’s face it. There are times when people can be secretive and decide to hide some of their financial assets. It might be they are trying to keep someone from accessing the funds or trying to make it seem like they have never existed. Finding hidden assets is challenging, depending on the person’s skill level. When you suspect someone might have hidden assets, you need a professional to locate them and determine the value. Here are some times when you need a professional assets search.

Divorce Proceedings

If your spouse always kept financial control of the household or has started claiming a lack of assets now that you have filed for divorce, it is time to let a professional look for any hidden money reserves or real assets like investment properties. If your spouse contemplated divorce for months or even years before leaving, they might have spent a long time hiding money you are entitled to in a settlement.


If you have been injured in an accident and plan to sue the other party, you need to know if they have any assets that make it worth your time to sue. When the insurance companies have paid the maximum benefits, you need to decide if the other person has the funds to pay a settlement. In cases like this, the liable party will want to appear as poor as possible to negotiate a smaller settlement.

Potential Investments

If you are considering making an investment in a company or going into business with another person, you need to have a complete picture of their finances and assets. In many instances, the company or person might try to make it seem like they have a lot more than they actually do.
