Asset Recoveries International, Ltd.

Asset Recoveries International, Ltd. ("ARI") locates unclaimed inheritances, finds the heirs entitled to them, and once retained, establishes ownership in a Court of Law resulting in the return of the properties to their rightful owners.

After an agreement between ARI and an heir is signed, professional researchers collect all the data necessary to support the claim in Court. This includes documents such as obituaries, death certificates, birth certificates, marriage certificates, church documentation, immigration and citizenship documents, and census records. ARI's legal team of experienced probate lawyers then presents this data along with an Affidavit of Heirship which it prepares. (ARI covers all legal costs as part of its fee.) If proof is established in Court, orders are entered that declare the correct heirs and direct the release of funds to them.

Founded in 1988, ARI has represented 100's of clients living in nearly every state and 13 different countries throughout the world. Its fee is payable if, and only if, clients receive their money. If ARI is unsuccessful in collecting assets, no payment, whatsoever, is due.
