There are a many websites designed to convince you to purchase their asset searches without a consultation, with pricing that is all over the map. What you get from those companies is often little more than what you could find with a little internet digging, and no real assurance that a true asset search is being conducted by experienced asset recovery specialists. We are not one of those companies.

F.A.Q's about Asset Searches

Q: How does the judgment collection process work? Does Justice Solutions Group do asset recovery and judgment recovery?

A: We do not conduct asset recovery or judgment collection for individuals, nor do we “buy” judgments. We are only in the business of identifying assets for recovery. It is often easier than people realize to collect civil judgments. Our team of professionals will be happy to point you in the right direction for tactics to recover judgments.

For corporate and legal clients, we can assist with recovery, depending on the amount owed. Each legal case has different standards for due diligence reporting, so speak with your SUI team member about the needs specific to your case.

Q: How long does it typically take to complete a search?

A: Searches typically take between 7-10 days. We can sometimes complete the search faster, depending on the nature of the case. For difficult subjects or special cases, the average is 14 days. Searches can be expedited for an additional fee.

Q: Will the subject be notified that I am searching for their accounts?

A: No, the other party will not receive any notice that is a search is being conducted. Our searches are done discreetly and covertly. For more information about how we conduct our searches, please watch the video below.

Q: What are the most common reasons clients conduct asset/bank account searches?

A: The most common reason to obtain bank account or brokerage account information (liquid assets) is so that a civil judgment or child support judgment can be enforced by a levy. Clients also perform searches to:

  • Identify property to place a lien against to satisfy a judgment
  • Aid in determining whether or not to proceed with a lawsuit
  • Identifying all non-exempt assets that can be used to satisfy a judgment such as vehicles, watercraft, aircraft, etc.
  • Identifying and confirming all assets in a divorce or a bankruptcy
  • Identifying and establishing admissible evidence that can later be used in a fraudulent action suit


Q: Is doing a bank account or other type of financial search legal?

A: Yes. There are laws that allow for the legal discovery of assets in the United States. Financial asset searches are covered by a set of federal laws known as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

The following purposes allow an asset search under those laws:

  • Legal/litigation purposes
  • Debt collection and judgment recovery
  • Fraud prevention or detection
  • Insurance

Q: What are some of the ways that people hide assets?

A: Individuals and companies can hide assets in various ways. They often attempt to do this to avoid the chance of losing their assets in a court-ordered judgment, to evade federal or state taxes, or during a divorce proceeding where the assets declared by each party is determining property and spousal support.

Attempts to hide assets can result in creating off-shore or “shell” companies in small island nations. People attempt to hide assets by transfers of real estate, titles, boats, R.V., and aircraft titles to family members. Justice Solution Group’s asset investigation methodology uncovers these attempts to transfer property, establishing evidence that can later be used in a fraudulent transfer action.

Some of the most common ways individuals and small businesses hide money include: 

  • Opening an LLC/C-Corp, then closing it, but keeping the bank account open. (Banks rarely ask for verification that the business is still operational)
  • Opening a business banking account as a DBA, instead of a personal checking account
  • Running checks and other deposits through a family member, who in turn gives the person cash or wires them the money
  • Opening shell companies to accept payments and then paying for personal expenses out of that account (co-mingling funds)
  • Using pre-paid debit cards as a bank, where they can receive funds and use the card like any traditional bank card
  • Opening a business and claiming a loss every year until they close the business. They then repeat the cycle by starting another business.
  • Opening a small business and running two sets of books, where not all cash is reported


Changes in a company structure can also hide assets. Most corporations require a thorough investigation to see if recent principal changes or board member changes occurred during the requested time period. These changes are often carefully constructed camouflage to transfer assets.
