Spanish term or phrase:Cartas testamentarias
Ok, se trata de un testamento en el que hay una oración que dice: "El tribunal declara con lugar la petición presentada y expide cartas testamentarias a favor del albacea..."
Se trata quizás de "probate"? No tengo idea.
Gracias de antemano. CG
Thanks to everybody. This is the term I ended up using and finding in similar documents everywhere, although all the answers provided were correct. Mil gracias nuevamente a todos. CG 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
etters of administration n. a document issued by the court clerk which states the authority of the administrator of an estate of person who has died, when there is no will or no available executor named by a will and an administrator has been appointed by the court. It is issued during probate of the estate as soon as the court approves the appointment of the administrator who files a security bond if one is required. Certified copies of the letters are often required by banks and other financial institutions, the federal government, stock transfer agents or other courts before transfer of money or assets to the administrator of the estate. (See: executor, probate)

Letters of Administration are granted by a court or probate registry to appoint appropriate people to deal with a deceased person's estate where property will pass under Intestacy Rules or where there are no executors living (and willing and able to act) having been validly appointed under the deceased's will.

The legal process in which a will is reviewed to determine whether it is valid and authentic. Probate also refers to the general administering of a deceased person's will or the estate of a deceased person without a will. The court appoints either an executor named in the will (or an administrator if there is no will) to administer the process of collecting the assets of the deceased person, paying any liabilities remaining on the person's estate and finally distributing the assets of the estate to beneficiaries named in the will or determined as such by the executor.
Not sure what the rest of the document says.... HTH
