Processing does not begin until we receive all of the necessary paperwork. Therefore, the sooner an heir or beneficiary contacts us, the more expedient the timeline.

American Heir offers extensive genealogical research and will create family trees when required.

Depending on the type of case, processing can take a few days, weeks, months or even a year.

Missing Heir & Beneficiary Location

OUR SERVICES


The business of locating missing heirs and beneficiaries has been in existence for over one-hundred years.

The primary challenge heir-finders face today, is not being able to initially disclose the source of the funds we've located. If we were to disclose before we receive an agreement, someone could simply say thanks, obtain it on their own, and we would not be compensated for our efforts and expense.

Agreements with legitimate heir finders in most cases allow for a contingent fee that's only paid if the asset is released.

Heir and beneficiaries never pay in advance for our services. We're only compensated if the funds are released. All funds we discover are distributed through an attorneys' trust account.

We advertise our services to attorneys, trust departments, insurance companies, banks, executors and administrators.
