English translation:declaratory proceedings, summary + declaratory proceedings, ordinary
Explanation:
Plaintiff is seeking a judicial declaration of his or her rights but no specific relief beyond that declaration. In other words, seeking a declaration by the court that a lawful right or obligation is present.

Summary proceedings - a faster route thru the court. Ordinary proceedings, normal slow route. Hard to come up with a graceful translation to work this concept into "declaratory proceedings."

Not providing prescriptive relief, not having the effect of a stay of execution of the judgment.


Explanation:
these are two possible translations for "efeito meramente devolutivo." It's the opposite of supersedeas, which suspends the effects of whatever decision is being appealed.
