The list goes on and on. The burden of finding these assets lies with the searcher since bank account information is highly protected.
bank account search

The objective of this search is to 1) identify open/active accounts for the purpose of judgment collection, or 2) assist your attorney in locating accounts which may be hidden or not reported in divorce discovery, or 3) to determine financial solvency prior to litigation.  Your subject will not know that he/she has ever been searched.  Docusearch, staffed only by licensed private investigators, will locate all open bank accounts associated with Subject’s name and Social Security Number and return the bank(s) name, address and phone number, account type, account title and approximate account balance, where available. We will not stop searching once an account is located. We will continue to search all banks and credit unions in your subject’s state of residence. No account numbers will be returned. Your attorney may subpoena all bank records (directly) from the bank once account(s) have been identified.

* Search fee is $249 plus $50 for each open account identified.  If no open/active accounts exist or are located, we will refund your entire search cost less a $50 research fee  Client may exclude known banks, however doing so will void the no-find guarantee.  Call us for further information or read the FAQ’s below.


This is a restricted search. Without exception, every client who orders this search will be contacted and interviewed before research begins. This bank account search is GLB* compliant and may be used to collect judgments for child support, bad debts, divorce judgments and almost any other legal reason in an attempt to collect a debt. You may be required to provide supporting documentation substantiating the purpose and legality of the search.  Every effort is made to determine the approximate account balances however this is not always possible or guaranteed.   Please note that account balances can change daily and therefore stated balances are approximations only.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I find a person’s hidden bank account?
A: Hidden or not, Docusearch can find most, if not all bank accounts associated with an individual provided with the subjects full name, SSN, street address, and date of birth. Simply click the ‘Place Order’ button to get started. We’ll ask you for the details needed to perform the search and then return the bank account information within 7-14 days – sent to your secure Docusearch account.

Q: I’m getting a divorce, can I find my spouses bank accounts for court references?
A: Yes, in fact it is very common for people to have hidden bank accounts when getting a divorce. Our hidden bank account search will find all bank accounts nationwide.

Q: Will the person know that I am searching for his/her bank accounts?
A: No, the individual will never know that you are searching for their hidden bank accounts.

Q: I’m suing someone, is it possible to find all of their bank accounts for when I go to court?
A: We can locate hidden bank accounts of the person you are suing. Please keep in mind that our return time for this search is between 7-14 days so it is important to do this search well before your court date.

Q: Can I be guaranteed that every account will be found?
A: Unfortunately not.  Although not 100% effective in locating every account a person or business may hold (no system is), our methods have proven much more effective/reliable than any other.

Q: Can I be assured that I will receive the current balance of every account located?
A: Every effort is made to return the current approximate account balance, however the subject may have an opt-out agreement on file with the bank/brokerage and may not be available.  However, we do not charge account fees for accounts found without balances or account balances of less than $100.

Q: I suspect you will find many open accounts with high balances.  Is there a maximum charge for accounts found?
A: Yes, for subject’s with numerous accounts, the maximum account fee charge is capped at $500. (10 accounts, each with a current balance over $100).

Q: Should I request a nationwide search for bank accounts?
A: The Bank Account Search will identify all accounts in a single state. Though rare, there may be circumstances where your subject may have accounts in multiple states. When you click the Order Now button, you will have the option to upgrade to a nationwide search for an additional $50.

Q: Can you locate closed accounts?
A: We do not specifically search for closed accounts because banks are not obligated to report them. If they are reported, we will include, however closure dates are not likely and may require an information subpoena from your attorney.

Q: Can you locate accounts associated with deceased individuals?
A: Yes. However, because deceased individuals do not maintain bank/brokerage accounts, the no-find guarantee is waived and you will be charged regardless of accounts being found.  Normally, once a bank has been notified the account-holder has passed, all accounts are frozen and account information is limited to the name and address of the bank.  On the occasion that the bank has not been notified, we will report any accounts associated with the subject’s SSN.
