Law (general)
English term or phrase: RETURN DATE HEARING
Encontré la definición de este tipo de vista:

"Sometimes an injunction is made before the person affected by it is told. If that happens the court will list a hearing so they can object to the making of the order if they want. This is called the return date hearing. Usually only a short hearing so if there is a dispute the matter usually has to be fixed for a trial so the court can hear evidence."

¿Sería una "vista preliminar"?

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Cristina Rivera González: Dependiendo de la población cultural de enfoque, "audiencia" sería lo correcto pero en muchos otros sería más apropiado escribir "vista". Así que ambas están correctas pero hay que considerar cuál sería más apropiada según el contexto cultural.

audiencia de contestación de demanda o declaración indagatoria

First option: "audiencia de contestación de demanda" applies for an appearance in court to file an answer in a civil law case; the second one "declaración indagatoria" corresponds to a defendant being informed of criminal charges and allowing to put forth a statement of defense.
