Explanation:
Alcaraz-Varo, so you can choose:

cedula= bond, warrant, certificate, scrip, schedule; cedula de citacion judicial a un demandado = summons, subpoena;
cedula de habitabilidad = certificate of occupancy, occupancy permit, certificate of fitness for habitation, certificate of habitability;
cedula hipotecaria = debenture bond, mortgage bond/certificate/debenture

and Thomas West has, in addition to the id card;
cedula de empadronamiento (Mex) VAT registration certificate
cedula de licencia final (Ecu)= certificate of final discharge from the armed forces
cedula de notificacion (Per) official notice of court decision
cedula juridica (Cos)= corporate identification number
cedula prendaria (Cos) = asset-backed security
cedula sumaria= lead schedule (details the components of an amount appearing on a financial statement
cedula testamentaria = codicil (to a will)
cedula tributaria (Ecu) certificate of tax payment
cedula verde (Arg) automobile registration papers.

Surely one of them fits! ;o)
