    Default Remitter issue

    Remitter issue.

    What is this phrase mean? I have seen this one from an Indian document (Deed Poll). And here are sentences containing this phrase:-
    I do hereby solemnly declare:-
    That for and on behalf of myself and husband and children and remitter issue wholly renounce / relinquish and abandon the use of my former names / surname of Mr. Piak and in place thereof I do hereby assume from this date the name / surname Mr. Pia
    That I expressly authorize and request all persons in general, relative and friends in particular at all times hereafter to designate and address me, my husband, my children, remitter issue by such assumes name / surname of Mr. Pia accordingly

    Best regards,
    Piak

    There is a legal term, remitter, but I don't think that applies here. Instead, I think remitter issue refers to family members not mentoned (perhaps not even born yet), grandchildren, for example.

    2. (Law) The sending or placing back of a person to a title or right he had before; the restitution of one who obtains possession of property under a defective title, to his rights under some valid title by virtue of which he might legally have entered into possession only by suit. --Bouvier.

    This is the Dictionary.com definition, so it would refer to unknown people who might have a legal claim. I believe that Paul Getty left fifty dollars of something to any children that he didn't know about so that if anyone came out of the wordwork claiming to be his child, that's all they'd get. I presume this is a case of this.

    Thank you, RonBee and Tdol. Those answers are good enough, I think, for the case I referred to.

    Thank you so much,
    Best regards,
    Piak
