Law/Patents - Law (general) / abbreviation
German term or phrase: SF-Nr
This is in a legal (divorce) document - just telling me what the abbreviation stands for in German would be great

Mind the gap :-))

In this case, i.e. if the \"SF-Nr.\" does not really belong to the \"Az.\", I\'d leave it as is nevertheless and add a footnote with an English explanation. You should ask the customer before in order to find out what SF stands for.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Margaret Marks: It's their internal reference so one might translate Nr. but I would leave the SF alone. he is the attorney and b the secretary, I imagine.
5 mins
  -> Entirely agree in the light of context provided.

agree  Dr. Sahib Bleher: As the SF-Nr is part of the reference no. (Aktenzeichen), do not translate, for recognised abbreviations see http://www.zap-verlag.de/online-dienste/iusgratis/akv.html
13 mins
  -> Yes, I agree (posted my answer before context was made available).

agree  Derek Gill Franßen: I wouldn't translate it either. This is most likely part of the law firm's file number. In context "SF" probably stands either for the initials of the attorney working the case (my guess) or the firm's internal abbreviation for the applicable area of law.
1 hr
  -> I tend to agree with Margaret's addition that "he" is the attorney.
