Reliable drift of the old fefacient, formed by the words faith- and -facient (which alludes to that "that makes" ). The literal meaning of reliable, therefore, refers to what does faith .
Something reliable, therefore, is unambiguous, irrefutable or manifest . In other words, the reliable is worthy of faith: reliable . By example : "The cause of death has not yet been established reliably", "The school principal said he will not take any action at the moment because he has no reliable knowledge of what happened.", “The court considered that there is no reliable evidence to convict the accused”.
The idea of reliable usually appears frequently in legal matters. A reliable notification , to cite a case, is one that allows obtaining a record of its content and its reception by the recipient. Through a reliable notification, the issuer is in a position to prove that the recipient has received the message on a specific date and time.
A reliable copy , in a similar sense, it is a reproduction of a document whose validity or veracity is confirmed. In order to carry out certain procedures or to specify certain operations, the delivery of a reliable copy of a documentation may be required.
A reliable proof , meanwhile, it is irrefutable and leaves no doubt. Suppose a man is accused of murdering a woman. The suspect says he does not know the victim: however, under the woman's nails are remains of the man's skin, as evidenced by a study of DNA . This discovery constitutes strong evidence that, at some point, the defendant was with the victim. It also allows to infer that the woman tried to defend herself against an aggression of this man and that, in that attempt, she scratched him: that is why the man's skin remained under his nails.
However, reliable evidence is not always conclusive in the development of a judgment , but serve to direct the process towards its resolution. In spite of how revealing they may seem to the naked eye, there are often strong data that invalidate them; For example, if we refer once more to the case of the previous paragraph, perhaps the man had a violent encounter with the woman but did not attack her with death, but his murderer appeared on the scene later.
We often meet the requirement of communicating certain issues in a reliable manner, and this confuses many users away from legal concepts. For example, in the real estate field, laws require members of a contract of rent to reliably notify everything related to the extension of the same, with the sale of the property or any change that affects the amount, among other points.
A notification It is considered reliable when its content and its reception are reflected in a legal and undeniable manner. In other words, the sender must be able to demonstrate that his receiver has been properly notified, at the scheduled date and time. It is very important to emphasize that the content must also be accredited, since it is not enough to prove or justify the sending and receipt of the document.
Continuing with the contracts, any natural person, such as being a company, is faced with the obligation to make a reliable notification, for which they make use of services and products such as certified emails, telegrams with acknowledgment of receipt and bureauphores, which are easy to hire and give them the ability to prove the content sent in addition to certifying the reception of the document.
