New rules on presumption of death

A new presumption of death certificate is to be created to help families deal with the legal issues surrounding the affairs of missing persons, the Ministry of Justice announced today.

Responding to a report by the Commons Justice Select Committee, the Ministry agreed that reforms would "help families deal with the array of legal and financial issues that need to be resolved when a person is missing and presumed dead".

Under existing law, a person must be missing for seven years before courts will legally presume they have died.

Justice Minister Jonathan Djanogly said: "The changes we are announcing will ensure that there is a law in place that provides a simple legal framework by which families of missing people can receive the appropriate guidance and tackle the problems they face in a straightforward way."

A bill is expected to be introduced into the House of Commons in autumn.
