The Use of Abandon

2/8/17 The Use of Abandon

The Use of Abandon

This term is used in two ways:

  1. to give up property or some right with the intent of never claiming it again; or
  2. in family law, to leave children or a spouse willfully and with no intent to return.

In sense 1, a person’s losing a billfold (say) and then giving up and unsuccessful search does not mean that the person abandons the lost billfold; to abandon it, the person would have to take some purposeful action such as throwing it away.
Interesting note: abandonee means not “one who is abandoned,” as the suffix –ee might suggest, but “one to whom property rights [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][in a thing] are relinquished.”
