Spanish term or phrase: afectante
En una cédula de notificación de un juicio por desafectación del régimen de bien de familia.

El escrito menciona a varias personas. Dice que una de ellas es "afectante y beneficiaria" del régimen de bien de familia y las otras personas son beneficiarias de dicho régimen.

Cómo se traduciría afectante en este caso? O algún sinónimo o explicación del significado de esta palabra como para ver cómo puedo traducirla?

Muchas gracias.

afectante al bien de familia
allocator; (Arg.) settlor on a family-asset protection trust

An answer amended in the light of the asker's extra info.

Also means an assignor or chargor (chattel mortgage) so el 'afectante' would be a chargor of goods or land or a pledgor (pawnbroker) of goods only. (West) encumber, allocate or use. Afectar *en fideicomiso*: settle on trust> West: place on trust.

desafectación - release (West) from a trust; de-allocation; 'disentailment'
In a legal sense 'afecto a' also means used for or 'appropriated to'.

Example sentence(s):
  • The Protective Trust is a form of settlement found in England and Wales and several Commonwealth countries. It has marked similarities to asset-protection trusts found in several offshore jurisdictions and US Spendthrift trusts.
  • The settlor decides how the assets in a trust should be used - this is usually set out in a document called the ‘trust deed’. Sometimes the settlor can also benefit from the assets in a trust - this is called a ‘settlor-interested’ trust
