explanation, not translation

vistos los autos = having considering all the judicial decrees and/or edicts written during the development of a specific trial, especially those from the ruling.

visto = past participle of ver

autos = judicial decrees, edicts

The Hispanic legal system (no juries) has always been based on written documents. It was customary that testimonies weren't given in front of the judge but written down and incorporated to the records for the judge to later consider them. This has changed in the last decades and now there are procedures that are to be done orally in front of the judge (and even newly adopted juries).

Autos is what sums up and conclude the legal action in the ruling/sentencing phase.

I agree with Alec. I will just add that in Mexico "vistos" may be some sort of hearings too, but I don't know if there is any equivalent in English. Also, "autos" may refer either to the previous resolutions made by the judge or the documents submitted by the lawyer to the court for the case.

Could a visto be a face-to-face?
A face-to-face is meeting between an applicant and an official. It is often a formal meeting used to appeal a denied claim.

I don't know what the difference between "vistos" and "audiencias" is; I have the impression that both have the two parts speaking before a judge. I'm not sure a face-to-face is an equivalent of these.

A face to face may not include a judge. In many cases, it's an adjudicator. I believe a claimant may bring a lawyer to such meetings.

@Pura: I'm glad you find the forums useful.

@Poli: I don't have anyone to ask about this, but I'm not sure there is anything like a face-to-face procedure here.

Angelica, there may be a good reason you have never heard the term face to face. The Spanish speakers I know who use the term call it un face to face
