are you planning get married again? if not, no need for a summary proceedings . If yes, we have these provisions under the family code;
1. the time required for the presumption to arise has been shortened to 4 years.
2. there is need for a judicial declaration of presumptive death to enable the spouse present to remarry.
3. a stricter standard is imposed: there must be a “well-founded belief” that the absentee is already dead before a petition for declaration of presumptive death can be granted. A married person must conduct a search for his missing spouse with such diligence as to give rise to a “well-founded belief” that he/she is dead.
