Whether you specialize in locating assets or you’re a probate attorney, we can assist you in the discovery process by searching for heirs and meticulously documenting their right to inheritance. We specialize in locating the family members of individuals with origins in the Czech Republic, Slovakia (formerly Czechoslovakia) and Austria. Our offices are centrally located in Hodonín, Czech Republic, which is near the boarder of both Slovakia & Austria.
Although the countries we cover are quite small, there are hundreds of State-run archives supported by local governments, that we utilize in the course of our research. In addition to the archives, we routinely deal with a wide range of judicial, municipal, and miscellaneous other entities. We have over 10 years experience and the knowledge needed to undertake intensive research projects in public records, databases, and specialized genealogical resources to identify long-lost relatives.
When the search is completed, we fully document the relationship of the decedent to each heir located. Final reports include all relevant documentation and a genealogical chart, as required for court presentation. Upon request we arrange affidavits, agreements, authorizations, and English translations in order that the potential heirs can be represented by your attorney in probate proceedings. All documentation is notarized with an Apostille.
