Employment Search – (Sources of Income)
Any basic asset investigation includes an employment search. Most people work for a living, and those that own businesses leave multiple tracks to follow also. The goal is always to find a source of revenue—whether it be to collect a debt, file a personal injury lawsuit, or even enforce an old judgment with a wage garnishment (called an Earnings Withholding Order in California).
And in family law cases, there may be issues involving health insurance coverage, 401k retirement plan contributions, and continuance of health insurance after spouses split.
This search will also include a search for self-employment, unemployment benefits or disability. If we find any of these sources of income on a subject we consider this a positive result, and the fee is earned.
All of these issues can be the subject of one of our employment searches. We can usually obtain a current work telephone number, and with a variety of techniques can confirm current employment. Obtaining benefits information can take a little longer, but we can usually find out the coverage available to and/or in place for the individual who is the target of your investigation.
