What is the Legal Status of a Person?

Status is the legal standing of an individual, whether it be personal or property-related. In the context of immigration law, it is the name of the visa category assigned to a person and the set of privileges they receive when becoming a permanent resident or non-immigrant (holder of a temporary visa). Legal status is the position or status held by an entity as determined by law. It implies a set of rights, duties, powers or restrictions that have been declared or contemplated by law.

A legal entity is any human or non-human entity that is treated as a person for certain legal purposes. Civil death is the legal status of a person who is alive but has been deprived of their rights and privileges as a citizen or member of society; it is also the legal status of someone who has been sentenced to life imprisonment.
