In our series on finding hidden assets, we move to the next stages of aggressively collecting on the judgment you have won in court.  The next stop is often overlooked.  Is the debtor still alive?   A judgment is good for 10 years in New York.  Much can happen in a decade, including a debtor might pass away.   It’s time to check the National Death Indes.

Using the National Death Index

If the person in question may have passed away, the National Death Index of the Social Security Administration is a good place to look. County courthouses are home to copies of local wills that entered into probate. Start with the county and state where the person died to see if an estate is on file.

An asset search from a skilled database researcher can get you genuine results quickly.  They will quickly work on your behalf.
