Spanish term or phrase: Sria. 26 de Asunción
Estoy traduciendo un acta de divorcio paraguaya para los Estados Unidos:

"Por S. D. de fecha xxx, la jueza de primera instancia en lo civil y comercial del décimo tercer turno, **Sria. 26 de Asunción**, Abogado xxx, y refrendado por el actuario judicial, Abogado xxx, resuelve: Hacer lugar a la demanda de divorcio promovida por el señor xxx contra la señora xxx, con el alcance previsto en el artículo 1 de la ley 45/91, disolviendo el vínculo matrimonial y habilitado (sic) a los contrayentes a contraer nuevas nupcias."

Pienso que quiere decir "secretaría 26 de Asunción", pero tengo dudas de cómo traducir "secretaría" en este contexto. Clerk's Office? Secretariat?

Muchas gracias a todos por su ayuda

Asunción District Registry no. 26; Registry no. 26 of the Greater Asunción Area
Explanation:
Asunción is of course the capital of Paraguay and a country largely unscathed by colonialism (cf. the classic treatise of 'Las Las venas abiertas de América Latina' by the Uruguayan author: Eduardo Galeano) and one where - as is usual in Latin America - Notaries Public and Registries are numbered outwards from the City Centre /Center e.g. 'de los del número' in web ref.. I have also alluded before now to Los Paraguayos, my favo(u)rite travelling band on the island of Majorca in the Swinging Sixties.
