All male U.S. citizens, and male aliens living in the U.S., who are ages 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service. Since there is no draft currently in effect, and men are not being classified for service, men with disabilities, clergymen, and men who believe themselves to be conscientiously opposed to war must also register.

Guardianship is when a court appoints a person (a guardian) to make certain decisions for another person (a ward). The court must determine that the ward is unable to make those decisions on their own. Guardianship can take away a person’s rights to decide to marry, make contracts, consent to medical treatment, establish a residence, and bring or defend an action in court.
