There are millions who go missing each year. In Britain alone, over two hundred and thirty thousand people go missing annually. Finding them all is impossibility; it is a Herculean task which is absolutely unachievable. Many a times, though tragic, these individuals are dead and their bodies are not found. Naturally, since their near and dear ones are unaware of their death, they just assume they are missing.
However, due to this, they often end up paying unwarranted insurance premiums and remaining married to such missing persons. This causes great emotional and financial loss to the people. To help with this, the Missing Persons Act was recently passed in UK.
Presumption Of Death
Presumption of death basically refers to presuming that a missing person who has been missing for ages is legally dead. This can greatly help people both legally and financially. Once a missing person is declared to be presumed dead, his or her spouse can annul their marriage and start life anew. Also, any mortgage payments, debts, insurance premiums, etc. don’t need to be paid any more. The recently passed act is a great step to help stabilize the property and affairs of a missing person. It can help you deal with the death of the person and move on in life.
How The Act Empowers You
This new act is a well thought out one with many practical applications. Earlier, a missing person could be presumed dead by the family but is not so legally. This means that all of his or her personal affairs, including marriage can be considered void but he or she is still liable to pay for any loans or insurance policies he or she may have. This act assigns a presumed dead certificate to the members of the person’s family. They can then use this legally as proof of death and stop paying out these monies. This can greatly help stabilize the family’s financial position. This is especially true in case the missing person is the sole earning member of the family.
