|Portuguese term or phrase: Acoes e Execucoes|
|The header of a Brazilian police clearance certificate.|
It reads as follows:
Certidao de Distribuicao
Acoes e Execucoes
Civeis e Criminais
Certifico, revendo os registros de distribuicao, a partir de 25 de April de 1967, até a presente data, que contra ....
I also need help with the second line "Certidao de Distribuicao", but I have posted a separate question.
|legal actions (or lawsuits) and collections or foreclosures|
Again, this is kind of an invented translation. "Acoes" covers all kinds of suits. "Execucao" refers to execution of a debt, execution of a legal judgment against someone, or foreclosure, even confiscation.
This gives you some hints, at least

Certidãod de distribuição has to do with the records of a legal action of any kind being distributed to the offices who will handle the action, to the state prosecutor and to the assigned judge.
A Affidavit is only a track of what is happening to the legal suit.
Ações e Execuções Civis and Criminais has to do with whatever actions where taken by the judge be it a civil suit or a criminal investigation that depended on a sentence from a judge or otherwise
Of course the legal system is little different so you need to find a term that better fits your translation
