2.- The parties reconcile;

TITLE XI: SPECIAL FORMS OF CONCLUSION OF THE PROCESS
Chapter I: Conciliation
Article 323.- Opportunity for conciliation
The parties can reconcile their conflict of interest at any stage of the process, provided that no judgment has been issued in the second instance.
Article 324.- Formality of the conciliation
The conciliation is carried out before a conciliation center chosen by the parties; however, if both request it, the Judge may summon it at any stage of the process. The Judge is not objectionable due to the manifestations that he could formulate in this hearing.
Judges, ex officio or at the request of both parties, may summon a conciliation hearing before issuing a sentence, except in cases of family violence. If the conciliation hearing is at the request of both parties and either party does not attend it, a fine of between three and six procedural reference units (URP) is applied.
Article 325.- Background requirement of the conciliation
The Judge will approve the conciliation that deals with available rights, provided that the agreement is adapted to the legal nature of the right in dispute.
Article 326: Conciliation hearing
With the parties present, or their attorneys-in-fact or representatives with the capacity to do so, the Judge will listen to the reasons presented by order. He will immediately propose the conciliation formula that his prudent discretion advises him. You can also order the suspension of the hearing and its subsequent resumption within a period of no more than ten days.
If the conciliatory formula is accepted, it will be entered in the Book of Conciliations that each court will carry out for this purpose, leaving a record in the file. If the proposal is not accepted, a record will be issued describing the formula proposed, also mentioning the party that did not agree to it.
If the sentence grants the same or lesser right than the one proposed in the conciliation and was rejected, the one who rejected it is imposed a fine of not less than two nor more than ten Procedural Reference Units, except in the case of maintenance process , in which case the judge may reduce the fine based on the amount demanded and the amount ordered to pay in judgment.
Article 327.- Conciliation and process
If, having opened a process, the parties conciliate outside of it, they will present in writing the respective Conciliation Act, issued by an Extrajudicial Conciliation Center.
Presented by the parties the conciliation act, the Judge will approve it after verification of the requirement established in article 325 and will declare the process concluded.
If the conciliation presented to the Judge is partial, and it falls on any of the claims or refers to one or more of the litigants, the process will continue with respect to the claims or the unaffected persons. In the latter case, the regulations on third-party intervention will be taken into account.
Article 328.- Effect of the conciliation
The conciliation has the same effect as the sentence that has the authority of res judicata.
Article 329.- Protocol of conciliation
The copy of the record of the Book of Conciliations, certified by the Judge and issued at the request of the interested party, is a full instrument for the exercise of the rights contained therein, as well as for its registration in the corresponding registry.
Chapter II: Search and Recognition
Article 330.- Search and Recognition
The defendant may expressly acquiesce or acknowledge the claim, legalizing his signature before the jurisdictional Auxiliary. In the first case, he accepts the claim directed against him; in the second, in addition to accepting the claim, it admits the veracity of the facts set forth in the claim and its legal grounds.
The recognition is regulated by the provisions for the search.
Article 331.- Opportunity of the search
The defendant can agree to the claim at any stage of the process, prior to sentencing.
The search proceeds with respect to any of the demanded claims.
Article 332.- Inadmissibility of the search
The judge declares the search inadmissible and orders the continuation of the process when:
1.- The defendant does not have the capacity to dispose of the right in conflict;
2.- The attorney or representative of the defendant lacks the power to acquiesce;
3.- The admitted facts need to be proven by other means, in addition to the declaration of the party;
4.- The conflict of interest affects public order or good customs;
5.- The conflict of interest includes unavailable rights;
6.- Having necessary joint litigation, the search does not come from all the defendants;
7.- Presume the existence of fraud or procedural fraud;
8.- Warns that the sentence to be issued will take effect against a third party not summoned; or
9.- The defendant is the State or another person of public law, unless its representative has express authorization.
Article 333.- Effect of the search
Once the search has been declared, the Judge must issue an immediate sentence, unless it does not refer to all the claims demanded.
Chapter III: Judicial transaction
Article 334.- Timeliness of the transaction
At any stage of the process, the parties can compromise their conflict of interest, even during the cassation appeal process and even when the cause is up for vote or in disagreement.
Article 335.- Requirements of the transaction
The judicial transaction must be carried out only by the parties or those who have express power to do so on their behalf. It is presented in writing, specifying its content and legalizing their signatures before the respective Secretary.
If, having opened a process, the parties compromise outside of it, they will present the document that contains the transaction, legalizing their signatures before the respective Secretary in the document in which they accompany it, a requirement that will not be necessary when the transaction is recorded in a public deed or document with a legalized signature. .
Article 336.- Transaction of the State and other persons of public law
The Legislative, Executive and Judicial Powers, the Public Ministry, the autonomous constitutional bodies, the Regional and Local Governments and the universities, can only compromise with the prior express approval of the competent authority or official.
This requirement is also applicable to conciliation, the withdrawal of the claim and the process.
Article 337.- Homologation of the transaction
The Judge approves the transaction as long as it contains reciprocal concessions, deals with economic rights and does not affect public order or good customs, and declares the process concluded if it reaches all of the proposed claims. Any decision on the fund that is not final remains without effect.
The transaction that ends the process has the authority of res judicata. The breach of the transaction does not authorize the injured party to request its resolution.
If the transaction falls on any of the proposed claims or is related to any of the persons, the process will continue with respect to the claims or persons not included in it. In the latter case, the regulations on third-party intervention will be taken into account.
With the judicial settlement it is not possible to create, regulate, modify or extinguish material relationships outside the process.
Article 338.- Supplementary regulations
In everything not provided for in this Chapter, the pertinent regulations of the Civil Code apply.
Article 339.- Legal act after the sentence
Even if there is a consented or enforceable sentence, the parties may agree to waive the obligation it contains, renew it, extend the term for its fulfillment, agree to a dation in payment and, in general, celebrate any legal act intended to regulate or modify compliance with the judgment. However, said legal act does not have the quality of a transaction nor does it produce the effects of it.
Chapter IV: Withdrawal
Article 340.- Withdrawal classes
The withdrawal can be:
1.- Of the process or of some procedural act; and
2.- Of the claim.
Article 341.- General aspects of the withdrawal
The withdrawal is not presumed. The document that contains it must specify its content and scope, the proponent legalizing its signature before the respective Secretary.
Withdrawal is unconditional and only hurts those who do so.
Article 342.- Opportunity
The withdrawal of the process or the procedural act is interposed before the procedural situation that is waived has taken effect.
The withdrawal of the claim proceeds before the sentence is issued in the first instance, unless it is conventional.
Article 343.- Withdrawal of the process or procedural act
The withdrawal of the process is concluded without affecting the claim. When it is formulated after the claim has been notified, it requires the defendant's agreement, expressed within the third day after notification, or in default. If there is opposition, the withdrawal will be ineffective, and the process must continue.
The withdrawal of any procedural act, be it a means of challenge, a means of defense or another, renders the procedural situation favorable to its holder without effect. If the withdrawal is from a challenging means, its effect is to make the contested act firm, unless adhesion has been filed.
Article 344.- Withdrawal of the claim
The resolution that approves the withdrawal of the claim, produces the effects of an unfounded claim with the authority of res judicata. This withdrawal will not require the agreement of the defendant, and the Judge must only review the capacity of the person who carries it out and the nature of the right that supports the claim, taking into account the provisions on the inadmissibility of the search as appropriate.
If the withdrawal does not refer to all the claims or if it is only deducted by one of the plaintiffs, the process will continue with respect to the claims and persons not included in it. In the latter case, the provisions on the necessary joint venture must be borne in mind.
The withdrawal of the claim does not impede the process of the counterclaim, which will continue before the same Judge, whatever its amount.
Article 345.- Withdrawal of unresolved claim
The holder of a claim not resolved in the first instance, can withdraw from it before the process is decided by the superior.
Chapter V: Abandonment
Article 346.- Abandonment of the process
When the process remains in the first instance for four months without an act that prompts it, the judge will declare its abandonment ex officio or at the request of a party or a legitimate third party .
For the calculation of the abandonment period, the process is understood to have started with the presentation of the claim.
For the same computation, the period during which the process would have been paralyzed by agreement of the parties approved by the judge is not taken into account.
Article 347.- Precautionary measures
Once the resolution that declares the abandonment of the process has been consented or executed, the precautionary measures are rendered ineffective, and the file is filed.
Article 348.- Nature of abandonment
The abandonment operates for the only course of the term from the last procedural action or from the notification of the last resolution.
There is no abandonment if after the period has elapsed, the beneficiary with it performs an act of procedural impulse.
Acts of procedural impulse are not considered those that are not intended to activate the process, such as the designation of a new domicile, request for copies, appearance of a new attorney and other similar.
Article 349.- Stoppage that does not cause abandonment
Abandonment does not operate when the stoppage of the process is due to force majeure and that the litigants could not have overcome with the procedural means at their disposal.
Article 350.- Inadmissibility of abandonment
There is no abandonment:
1.- In the processes that are in execution of sentence;
2.- In non-contentious processes;
3.- In the processes in which imprescriptible claims are disputed;
4.- In the processes that are being sentenced, unless action is pending, the performance of which depends on a party. In this case, the term is counted from the notification of the resolution that ordered it;
5.- In the processes that are pending a resolution and the delay in issuing it is attributable to the Judge, or the continuation of the process depends on an activity that the law imposes on the jurisdictional Auxiliary or the Public Ministry or another authority or official public that must comply with a procedural act required by the Judge; and,
6.- In the processes that the law indicates.
Article 351.- Effects of abandoning the process
Abandonment ends the process without affecting the claim. However, his declaration prevents the plaintiff from starting another process with the same claim for one year, counted from the notification of the order declaring it. It also restores things to the state they were in before the lawsuit.
If, for the second time, between the same parties and in the exercise of the same claim, abandonment is declared, the right sought is extinguished and the cancellation of the plaintiff's titles is ordered, if there is a case.
Article 352.- Validity of tests performed in abandoned process
The tests performed in a process extinguished by default are valid and can be offered in another process.
Article 353.- Appeal resources
The resolution declaring the abandonment is appealable with suspensive effect. The appeal can only be based on the existence of a calculation error, or force majeure. The resolution that rejects an abandonment request is appealable without suspensive effect.
Article 354.- Abandonment and expiry prescription
Once the abandonment is declared, the prescription interrupted by the location continues to run, as if the interruption had not occurred.
TITLE XII: CHALLENGING MEANS
Chapter I: General Provisions
Article 355.- Challenge means

Article 359.- Breach of the requirements
Failure to comply with any of the requirements determines the declaration of inadmissibility or inadmissibility of the challenging means, by means of a duly substantiated resolution. This resolution is only appealable in complaint in the cases of Article 401.
Article 360.- Prohibition of double recourse
A party is prohibited from filing two appeals against the same resolution.
Article 361.- Waiver of appeal
During the course of the process, the parties may agree to waive an appeal against the resolutions that, by ruling on the merits, put an end to it. This waiver will be admissible as long as the right that supports the disputed claim is waivable and does not affect public order, good customs or mandatory rule.
Chapter II: Replacement
Article 362.- Origin
The appeal for reconsideration proceeds against the decrees in order for the Judge to revoke them.
Article 363.- Procedure
The term to file it is three days, counted from the notification of the resolution. If the appeal is filed, the Judge notices that the defect or error is evident or that the appeal is notoriously inadmissible or inadmissible, he will declare it so without the need for processing. If deemed necessary, the Judge will grant a transfer for three days. Once the deadline has expired, it will resolve with your answer or without it.
If the contested resolution is issued at a hearing, the appeal must be filed orally and resolved immediately, prior transfer to the opposing party or in default.
The order that resolves the appeal for reconsideration is unquestionable.
Chapter III: Appeal
Article 364.- Object
The appeal is intended for the higher court to examine, at the request of a party or a legitimate third party, the resolution that causes them harm, with the purpose of having it totally or partially annulled or revoked.
Article 365.- Origin
1.- Against the judgments, except those that can be challenged with a cassation appeal and those excluded by agreement between the parties;
2.- Against the files, except those that are issued in the processing of an articulation and those that this Code excludes; and
3.- In the cases expressly established in this Code.
Article 366.- Grounds for the grievance
The one who files the appeal must substantiate it, indicating the error of fact or law incurred in the resolution, specifying the nature of the offense and supporting his / her claim to challenge.
Article 367.- Admissibility and inadmissibility
The appeal is filed within the legal term before the Judge who issued the contested resolution, accompanying the receipt of the respective judicial fee when it is required.
The appeal or adhesion that do not accompany the receipt of the fee, are filed after the deadline, that have no basis or do not specify the grievance, will be declared inadmissible or inadmissible, as the case may be.
For the purposes referred to in Article 357, the appellant will be ordered to remedy, within a period of no more than five days, the omission or defect that could be noticed in the receipt of payment of the respective fee, in the notification certificates, in the authorization of the appeal by the Collegiate Lawyer or in the signature of the appellant, if he / she is domiciled in the city where the court that hears the appeal is based. If the omission or defect is not corrected, the appeal will be rejected and declared inadmissible.
If the appellant does not have a procedural domicile in the city where the court heard the appeal, he will process the case regularly and it will be the Judge who will order the corresponding correction of the error.
The superior can also declare the appeal inadmissible or inadmissible, if he realizes that the requirements for granting it have not been met. In this case, in addition, the concessionaire will be declared void.
Article 368.- Effects
The appeal is granted:
1.- With suspensive effect, so that the effectiveness of the appealed resolution is suspended until the notification of the order that the provisions of the superior are complied with.
Notwithstanding the suspension, the Judge who issued the contested resolution may continue to hear the issues that are processed in a separate notebook. Likewise, it may, at the request of the party and in a duly motivated decision, order precautionary measures that prevent the suspension from causing irreparable harm.
2.- No suspensive effect, so the effectiveness of the contested resolution is maintained, even for compliance with it.
When granting the appeal, the Judge will specify the effect in which the appeal is granted and if it is deferred, if applicable.
Article 369.- Deferred appeal
In addition to the cases in which this Code provides, ex officio or at the request of a party, the Judge may order that the processing of an appeal be reserved without suspensive effect, in order for it to be resolved by the superior together with the sentence or other resolution that the judge indicates. The reasoned decision of the Judge is unquestionable.
The lack of appeal of the sentence or of the resolution indicated by the Judge determines the ineffectiveness of the deferred appeal.
Article 370.- Competence of the superior judge
The superior judge cannot modify the contested resolution to the detriment of the appellant, unless the other party has also appealed or has joined or is a minor. However, you can integrate the appealed resolution in the deciding part, if the justification appears in the considering part.

Article 371.- Origin of the appeal with suspensive effect
The appeal proceeds with suspensive effect against the judgments and orders that conclude the process or prevent its continuation, and in the other cases provided for in this Code.
Article 372.- Origin of the appeal without suspensive effect
Appeals without suspensive effect proceed in cases expressly established by law and in those in which no appeal with suspensive effect is required.
When this Code does not refer to the effect or the quality in which a resolution is appealable, it is without suspensive effect and without the quality of deferred.
Article 373.- Term and procedure of the appeal of sentences
The appeal against the sentences is filed within the term established in each procedural channel, counted from the day following its notification.
Once the appeal is granted, the file will be raised within a period of no more than twenty days, counted from the granting of the appeal, unless otherwise provided in this Code. This activity is the responsibility of the jurisdictional Assistant.
In the processes of knowledge and abbreviated, the superior will grant transfer of the appeal letter for a period of ten days.
When answering the transfer, the other party may adhere to the appeal, justifying their grievances, of which transfer will be granted to the appellant for ten days.
With the acquittal of the other party or of the appellant if there was adhesion, the process is expedited to be resolved, with the declaration of the superior judge in this regard, indicating the day and time for the hearing of the case.
The withdrawal of the appeal does not affect the adhesion.
Article 374.- Evidence in the appeal of sentence
The parties or legitimate third parties may offer evidence in the writing of the appeal or in the acquittal of grievances, only in the following cases:
1.- When the evidence refers to the occurrence of events relevant to the right or interest discussed, but occurred after the application stage of the process had concluded; and
2.- In the case of documents issued after the start of the process or that have not been proven and obtained previously.
The resolution by which the superior declares the evidence offered inadmissible is unquestionable. If they were admitted and required, a date will be set for the respective hearing, which will be directed by the least senior Judge, if the superior is a collegiate body.
Article 375.- Hearing of the case and oral report
In the processes of knowledge and abbreviated, the designation of the date for the hearing of the case is notified to the parties ten days before its realization.
In the other processes, notice is given in advance of five days.
Oral report only proceeds when the appeal has been granted with suspensive effect.
Within the third day of notification of the hearing date, the Lawyer who wishes to inform will communicate it in writing, indicating whether the party will report facts. The communication is considered accepted by the mere fact of its presentation, without requiring additional citation. Postponement is not allowed.
The provisions of this Article apply to all civil courts that perform a second instance function.
Article 376.- Term and procedure of the appeal of cars with suspensive effect
The appeal against the files to be granted with suspensive effect, is filed within the following periods:
1.- Three days if the order is pronounced out of court. This is also the deadline for joining and for replying, if any; or

Within five days of receipt, the superior will inform the parties that the files are expedited to be resolved and will designate the day and time for the hearing of the case.
The allegation of new facts is inadmissible.
The final resolution will be issued within the five days following the hearing of the case.
Article 377.- Processing of the appeal without suspensive effect
The appeal is filed within the same terms provided for in the previous article. In the same resolution that grants the appeal without suspensive effect and without the quality of deferred, the actions that must be sent to the superior are specified, considering those proposed by the appellant when appealing, without prejudice to the fact that the instance that resolves may request the documents that you consider necessary.
Within the third day of notification of the concessionaire, the other party may adhere to the appeal and, if considered, ask the Judge to add to the appeal notebook the actions that he deems appropriate, upon payment of the respective fee.
The jurisdictional auxiliary, within five days of being notified by the concessionaire, under responsibility, sends to the corresponding instance the pieces indicated by the Judge, duly scanned, forming a virtual appeal notebook, in addition to the remittance document signed by the Judge, adding the original to the main file that it uploads in cd and other magnetic medium and leaving a record of the date of shipment.
In the cases in which the jurisdictional bodies do not have the possibility of scanning, the jurisdictional assistant sends the photocopies of the procedural pieces.
In cases where the same resolution has been appealed by several parties or persons, a single appeal notebook will be formed, under responsibility.
Received the notebook by the instance that resolves the appeal, this communicates to the parties that the files are expedited to be resolved. In this process, there is no oral report or any other procedural activity. Notwithstanding this, the Superior may ex officio summon the Lawyers to inform or respond to specific questions contained in the appealed resolution.
Article 378.- Acts against the sentence issued in second instance
Only the request for clarification or correction and the appeal for cassation will proceed against the judgments of the second instance, provided that the formal and substantive requirements for their admission are met.
Article 379.- Compliance with the judgment of second instance
Once the sentence of second instance that contains a mandate has been consented, and the file is returned to the Judge of the claim, the sentence acquires the quality of title of judicial execution, proceeding in accordance with the provisions of Chapter V, Title V of SECTION FIFTH of this Code.
Article 380.- Nullity or revocation of an appealed resolution without suspensive effect

Article 381.- Costs and costs in second instance
When the second instance sentence fully confirms the first instance sentence, the appellant will be sentenced with the costs and costs. In all other cases, the sentence will be set according to the terms of the revocation and the conduct of the parties in the second instance.

The appeal contains intrinsically the annulment, only in cases where the defects are related to the formality of the contested resolution.
Article 383.- Return of the file
Once the appeal has been resolved with suspensive effect, the file will be returned to the Judge of the claim, within ten days of the resolution being notified, under the responsibility of the respective justice assistant.
Once the appeal is resolved without suspensive effect, the secretary of the superior notifies the resolution to the parties within the third day of issuance. Within the same period, under responsibility, it sends the judge of the claim a copy of the decision, by facsimile or by the fastest possible means. The appeal notebook with the original of the respective resolution is kept in the superior's file, being returned with the principal only when the appeal that ends the process is resolved.

Article 412.- Principles of the sentence in costs and costs
The imposition of the sentence in costs and costs does not need to be sued and is at the expense of the defeated party, unless express and motivated judicial declaration of the exoneration.
The condemnation of costs and costs is established by each instance, but if the second resolution revokes the first one, the defeated party is ordered to reimburse the costs and costs of both instances. This criterion also applies to what is resolved in appeal.
If in a process several claims have been discussed, the sentence affects only those that have been accepted for the winner.
In cases in which legal aid has been granted to the winning party, the losing party is sentenced to reimburse the judicial fees to the Judicial Power.

Article 415.- Agreement on reimbursement of costs and costs in the transaction and conciliation
The parties must agree on the reimbursement of costs and costs when the process concludes by transaction or conciliation. Said agreement is not enforceable for those who do not participate in it, who are subject to the general rules.
If the agreement on the reimbursement of costs and costs is omitted, it is understood that each party assumes their own.
Article 416.- Condemnation of costs and costs in withdrawal and abandonment
If the process concludes by withdrawal, either of the process or of the claim, whoever withdraws is sentenced to costs and costs, unless otherwise agreed.
The abandonment of the process determines the sentence in costs and costs of the plaintiff.
Article 417.- Settlement of costs
After the resolution that imposes the sentence on costs is final, the creditor has the burden of submitting a settlement of these.
The liquidation will attend to the items mentioned in article 410, having to include only the legal expenses incurred and corresponding to legally authorized actions.
The convicted party has three days to observe the settlement, with suitable evidence. Once the period has elapsed without any observation, the settlement is approved by an uncontested resolution.
Once the observation is filed, transfer is granted to the other party for three days. With or without his acquittal, the judge decides. The resolution is appealable without suspensive effect.
Article 418.- Origin of collection of costs
To make the collection of costs effective, the winner must submit an indubitable document of a certain date that proves his payment, as well as the corresponding taxes. Based on the documents presented, the judge will approve the amount.
Article 419.- Reimbursement of costs and costs
The reimbursement of costs and costs is required before the execution judge and is made within the third day after the resolution approving them is final. Once the term has expired, non-payment generates legal interest.
TITLE XVI: FINES
Article 420.- Judicial declaration and destination of the fine
The fine must be declared in court, specifying its amount, the person obliged to pay it and the proportion in which it is supported, if more than one. When it is not specified, it is understood to be imposed in equal parts.
The fine is the income of the Judiciary. In no case shall its exoneration proceed.
Article 421.- Payment unit applicable to the fine
The Procedural Reference Unit applicable to the payment of the fine will be the one in force on the date it becomes effective. In the settlement that is presented, the rule that sets the unit of payment will be cited.
Article 422.- Liquidation and procedure
The settlement of the fine is made by the Clerk of the Court and approved by the Judge of the claim.
All the resolutions issued to specify the amount of the fine are unquestionable. However, an appeal without suspensive effect will be granted if the obligor questions the value of the Procedural Reference Unit used to make the settlement.
If the resolution is confirmed, the obligor must additionally pay a sum equivalent to twenty-five percent of the liquidated amount.
Article 423.- Payment of fine
The fine must be paid immediately after it is imposed. Otherwise, they accrue legal interest.
The judge of the cause requires the fined of the payment. If after ten days of being notified with the corresponding resolution, the value of the same has not been paid, the fine resolution is transferred for collection in the corresponding office, which has coercive powers.
