We understand that when individuals go missing, the absence of a body can create legal and emotional complexities, leaving families and loved ones in a state of uncertainty. Here, we provide insights into the unique circumstances surrounding such cases and the process involved in obtaining a death certificate.
In these situations, when a person goes missing and there is insufficient evidence to confirm their demise, the legal system offers a solution through the Determination of Death process.
An attorney plays a crucial role in initiating the Determination of Death case by petitioning the court.
We help families understand the legal procedures involved in these cases.
We gather information about the circumstances of the disappearance, the passage of time, and any supporting evidence available. Based on this information, we present to the judge, seeking approval for a death certificate to be issued. Upon the judge’s approval a death certificate can be issued.
