Court decree on parent's legal incapacity/incompetency
Explanation:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacity_(law)
When the law limits or bars a person from engaging in specified activities, any agreements or contracts to do so are either voidable or void for incapacity. Sometimes such legal incapacity is referred to as incompetence. For comparison, see Competence (law).

http://www.merck.com/mmhe/sec01/ch009/ch009b.html
Legal Incapacity: Legal capacity and all the rights that go with it remain in effect until death, unless a court of law determines that a person can no longer manage personal affairs in his own best interest and court intervention is necessary to protect the person (a status called legal incapacity or incompetency).

agree  jacana54: En apoyo de tu explicación: una declaratoria de interdicción es el resultado de un proceso; tiene efectos para el interdicto y para terceros. Por eso no es un "statement". La palabra "declaratoria" tiene un sentido técnico.

  -> Exacto Lu! Lo expresaste mejor que yo, declaratoria es una decisión judicial no contestataria y que es distinto de una sentencia, también de un statement, los dos polos. Es así?

agree  Miriam Cutler: good; perhaps Court order is more commonly used. More food for thought: 1) a court statement is not a decision, decree, ruling or order: it is just that, a statement. 2) a court decision could be an order or decree.

  -> OK, I agree with your comments, that's why I'm sticking with "decree", because it is making known the status of a person and not really ordering somebody to comply with a specific obligation. Thanks for your input.
