... Con lo que siendo para más se dio por finalizado el acto, previa lectura que en alta voz dio el actuario de la prsente, ratificándose y firmando el compareciente, después de S.S., por ante mí, de lo que doy fe.

S.S. es Your Honor? Se usa "appears before Your Honor", o "appears before the Judge", o de alguna otra forma??

SU SEÑORíA ILUSTRíSIMA DON MARIANO MECERREYES JIMENEZ, Magistrado del Juzgado de lo Social núm. 1 de Cáceres y de su Provincia, ha visto y oído los autos registrados con el número...
Your Honor: = Su Señoría:
Miss Anthony: When I was brought before your honor for trial, I hoped for a broad and liberal interpretation of the Constitution and its recent amendments, that should declare all United States citizens under its protecting ægis—that should declare equality of rights the national guarantee to all persons born or naturalized in the United States. But failing to get this justice—failing, even, to get a trial by a jury not of my peers—I ask not leniency at your hands—but rather the full rigors of the law.

agree  Marsha Way: The phrase given in the other option is "your" because the person is speaking directly to the judge; this is in 3rd person, so it would be "his" (or "her"!!)

  -> Thanx Marsha! Yes, Her Honor as well! Forgot about the lady judges!
