Hidden Assets: Brokerage 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. Docusearch is staffed by real, licensed private investigators and professional skip-tracers specializing in the location of hidden assets. We will conduct a thorough nationwide search of all major brokerages (both brick & mortar and online). Results will include brokerage name, address and phone number, account type, account title and current approximate account balance, where available. (No account numbers will be returned) We will not stop searching once an account is located. We will continue to search all major brokerage firms, nationally. Your subject will not know that he/she has ever been searched.

* Search fee is $299 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 $100 research fee. Call us for further information.

This is a restricted search. Without exception, every client who orders this search will be contacted and interviewed before research begins. This brokerage 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.
