Asset Check

California Asset Checks | US Asset Checks

Asset checks are a tool used to uncover the financial status of a business or individual.  Asset searches are conducted for a number of reasons.  Fraud detection, judgment recovery, uncovering hidden assets for the purpose of child or alimony support, case valuation and case settlement are legitimate purposes for conducting asset checks.  For other types of asset checks, please see our Business Asset Check and Personal Asset Check pages.

A broad range of sophisticated on-line databases and investigation resources provides us with access to critical information on individuals and businesses. We also have access to a network of highly trained professionals, which enables us to compile the most complete reports possible on individual and corporate assets.

Filley & Associates provide database services to the insurance and legal communities, subject to GLB and IRSG guidelines. We are experienced in using the most effective databases for the individual situation and develop the best information possible in the most cost effective manner.  We conduct our asset searches in-house and do not outsource asset checks.
