What Are Assets?
Everyone has assets whether they realize it or not. It is not always the amount you have in the bank or in your wallet. Assets are the monetary value of the possessions that an individual or business owns. Basically, anything that has economic value is considered an asset. A few examples include:
- Land/ Property
- Real Estate
- Trust Fund
Situations When an Asset Search Investigation is Beneficial
You Are Filing for Divorce
It is not uncommon for spouses to hide assets throughout a marriage – and especially during a divorce. Hidden bank accounts, property you may not know they own, or inheritances that have not been disclosed are just a few examples of the hidden assets they might be hiding. Entitlement to these assets in a divorce might depend whether there is a prenuptial agreement in place, but if any was purchased or obtained during a marriage, it is within your right to have knowledge of it.
If you suspect your spouse is hiding assets, or want to cover all your bases in your divorce, be sure to conduct an asset search investigation.
You Are Filing a Lawsuit
The best time to request an asset search is when your case is in pre-litigation. Pre-litigation is before you officially file a lawsuit. Litigation is when the lawsuit has been filed. An asset search can help in your litigation strategy or even a reasonable settlement.
You Are Undergoing a Business Acquisition or Merger
Before making a significant business agreement, it is always best to investigate first. Does the other company have a history of bankruptcy? In a business asset investigation, the private investigator may go through a business owner’s public records to look for any previous bankruptcy or UCC filings. These types of records can provide insight into a business’s finances and profitability potential.
