Relationship of representation arises when, on behalf of interest of the person, legal actions are performed by other person, a representative. Representatives act on behalf of the representative and so the representative becoms a party of legal action, it is to him, and not representative that will have consequences. In Lithuania Civil Code Article 2.132 states that individuals have the right to transact through their representatives, but there are also a kind of transactions which can not be made through their representatives. These transactions, which, because of their special nature of legal entities can only be performed personally (the formation of marriage, probate formation, etc.), and other laws of the transactions.
Representation Institute is particularly significant. Because of it the rights and obligations can be implemented without the person taking action. Representing is significant when the person is unable to function independently because of a physical disability, lack of capacity, as well as the necessary knowledge and skills shortages.
