Collier County Death Records

The importance of death records like Collier County Death Records would lie in the fact that these are the official records of the government, and because of that, they are the best evidence that one could provide in order to prove the happening of something. In the case of these records, that event would be the death of the person whose name appears on the record, because death is something that is of interest not only to those people who would be left behind by the deceased, but even by strangers who have never even heard of the deceased before he died, and, theoretically, the whole world.

This is because death is something that would affect the status of the deceased, in fact, death would terminate the civil personality of the deceased, and without his civil personality, the deceased could not enter into any valid and binding contracts while those contracts that he had entered into while he was still alive and are still in existence would have to be terminated. Of course, this cannot be done hastily for there may be some claims against the deceased and those who have such claims would be given the chance to ventilate their claims in the proper forum which would be the probate court. One must note, however, that probate courts would require copies of Collier County Death Certificates.

This means that there would be the need to prove the death of the deceased first, and was mentioned before, the best way to do that would be by presenting the official records of the government. This is because the official record enjoy what is known as presumption of regularity, and because of the nature of the death records, in that they would only be issued if the deceased had died, there is often no need to actually look into the contents of the records in order to have prima facie evidence of the death of the decedent.
