Asset Searches

With the way that our world is built, there are certain factors that can impact the result of almost any conflict. One of those things is money. People work hard to find it, earn it and protect it. It is plays a large role in many interactions we have with other people. Employers hire employees to work for money, business partners share in fiscal responsibility, spouses join their assets and creditors lend it to those who are in temporary need of it. Because of the potential evasive nature of many people, a need may often arise for an investigator to locate one's assets that are either missing or unknown.

Asset searches and investigations are used to divulge the financial profile of an individual or business, and are extremely useful in matters involving litigation. Our investigators can untangle webs of complex inter-relationships and crack the technology that conceals the truth. At T.J. Ward & Associates, we understand how to locate hidden assets to help clients with their particular issue. We may also work with your attorney to assist in obtaining a judgment on your behalf. No matter the reason for requiring an asset investigation, a private investigator at our company can help.

When it comes to locating assets, you may need a private investigator to help you. This is an area of investigation with which our team has a significant amount of experience. Many individuals and companies enlist our services for the following:

  • Preparation for the process of filing for litigation

  • Confirm / deny the existence of real or hidden assets

  • Investigating fraud of an investment manager

  • Assistance with conducting a due diligence investigation

  • Preparation by a financial institution prior to lending money

  • Investigating joint assets during a divorce proceeding

  • Providing leverage in negotiations to learn financial health

  • Performing executive background screenings


Public documents, financial reports and discreet inquiries do not always portray the entire picture. We take our investigation beyond public records in order to ascertain a clearer picture of a person's behavior and assets. Often times, we use surveillance investigation to provide a practical sense of the overall financial picture. For example, dining at expensive restaurants and luxury travel can identify a lifestyle inconsistent with known income and assets. We are adept at putting together all of the pieces of the puzzle.

Our financial investigation services can be conducted to assist attorneys with litigation matters and for businesses who have to make significant decisions. We can take the asset search to another level by compiling lifestyle information when a public records search may fall short. We use surveillance to our advantage in these situations to provide a practical sense of the overall financial picture.
