Various legal questions may arise in the course of a person’s lifetime, including matters pertaining to consent to care, a name change, or protective supervision of an adult. Personal rights law covers a wide range of issues, from a person’s name, gender, and domicile to their civil status and protection regime.

In some cases, issues can arise even before a person reaches the age of majority, particularly with regard to consent to care and a change of gender and emancipation applications. In others, people can spend much of their lives without dealing with such matters until a mandate in case of incapacity is required.
