renuncia al emplazamiento y personación


Explanation:
There are two points to consider here:

--Translation of "citation" (confusion of "citación" and "emplazamiento"): Rather than "citación", tn this context I believe "emplazamiento" would be the appropriate term, since your text involves the commencement of divorce proceedings in which the respondent is typically given a term ("plazo") in which to respond to the divorce petition. (An "emplazamiento" gives the party a term in which to respond, while a "citación" requires a party to appear in court at a definite time. Both may be accurately translated as "citation" or "summons", depending on the context. In this context, "emplazamiento" would be the accurate term.)

--Translation of "entry of appearance" (confusion of "comparecencia" and "personación") : "Entry of appearance" (or "filing an appearance") denotes a party's initial appearance in a proceeding, and in Spanish this is called "personación".

"Personación" ("entry of appearance") should not be confused with "comparecencia", which is simply the appearance of a party or witness in court at a given time once the proceedings are underway.

In short, a party (usually represented by an attorney) "enters an appearance" (se persona en el proceso) at the commencement of a proceeding, while during the course of a proceeding a party or a witness appears ("comparece") in court when summoned or when procedural rules require him to do so.

comparecencia voluntaria y renuncia de citación/convocatoria (para la incoación del proceso)


Explanation:
Véase modelo de formulario,

http://forms.justia.com/kansas/local-district-court/10th-jud...

"Requirements for filing an uncontested (waiver) divorce: 3-Petitions, 3-Entry of Appearance and Waiver, 3-Decrees of Dissolution of Marriage."

http://www.tulsacounty.org/TulsaCounty/dynamic.aspx?id=732

Como indica Lorena23 en el foro, son trámites/formularios que se utilizan en los procesos de divorcio voluntario/no impugnado. El demandado comparece de forma voluntaria y renuncia formalmente a ser notificado o citado de la incoación de un proceso civil, es decir, no es necesario que se entablen acciones legales/judiciales en su contra.

"ver propuesta"


Explanation:
Waiver of Citation Law & Legal Definition
In divorce law, a waiver of citation may be used to dispense with some procedural formalities such as formal service of legal papers and transcription of proceedings in uncontested divorces. In the typical lawsuit, one party files and the other gets served with the complaint by a sheriff or process server. In an uncontested divorce the divorce petition may simply be mailed to the other spouse along with a waiver of citation. The husband or wife who signs the waiver is merely acknowledging that he or she has received the divorce petition and does not need to be officially served. The waiver also allows the final divorce hearing to be held without that person being present and says a court reporter does not need to record what is said.

ENTRY OF APPEARANCE
An entry of appearance is a formal declaration to the court, made by an attorney, that they are going to be involved in the case and representing one of the parties. It makes it harder for an attorney to get out or withdraw their appearance. Also, all court correspondence will be directed to the attorney.


COMENTARIO
De todo lo que te adjunto, lo que he sacado en claro (creo) es lo siguiente:
La parte demandada recibe la notificación de demanda de divorcio mediante mail o cualquier otra vía no formal. La parte demandada está conforme con dicha demanda (puesto que es conocedora de la misma). Ante notario (de lo contrario no tiene validez legal), la parte demandada admite la recepción de la notificación de la demanda de divorcio, renuncia a asistir a la vista de la parte demandante (tiene esa opción), y designa un representante legal.

PROPUESTA
Admisión de notificación de demanda de divorcio y renuncia, ante notario, a procedimientos de notificación formales, así como a la asistencia a la vista de la parte demandante, y designación de representante legal.
