Spanish term or phrase: MFG
I'm working with a legal document and came across the acronym MFG below the signatures. It is a Colombian document dealing with a notary for divorce papers. Any help would be great!

Estoy revisando un documento legal que tiene que ver con un divorcio. Abajo de las firmas del notario y las personas involucradas aparece la sigla "MFG" y no tengo ni el menor idea de que significa en español para traducirla al inglés. ¡Gracias de antemano!

neutral  AllegroTrans: but how would this person be involved with divorce cases?
36 mins
  -> If he/she was the person presiding over the case they would have signed legal documents. It is only a guess (see confidence level). Perhaps we should wait for someone who is expert on Colombian divorce proceedings....

disagree  Giovanni Rengifo: This doesn't make any sense.
6 hrs
  -> Divorce papers are normally signed by the presiding judge/attorney/registrar.
