Summary/Abstract: The article concerns the protection of adults in private international law. It is about the need to protect adults who require help the most, because of illness or an inability to self-expression of will or decisions with legal effect, both in relation to persons and property. The need for the protection is justified by the serious demographic changes. Today's demographic structure of society in Europe indicates rapidly progressing aging processes. Also, in the age of globalization, persons with intellectual or physical disabilities, as well as the elderly, are increasingly moving beyond the borders of their native countries. In cross-border cases, it is necessary to determine the court jurisdiction, the applicable law and the effectiveness of foreign judgments on the territory of Poland. The mutual cooperation of states for the protection of adults is also of great importance. The article presents the applicable legal regulations in Poland.
