By means of Decree No. 15-2011, the Republic of Guatemala has enacted the regulating notifications by electronic means in the judicial organ.
According to this decree which has become effective from 19 October 2011, the parties and their attorneys may be served at the email addresses previously indicated in all judicial and administrative proceedings before Judiciary entities.
The parties and the attorneys may join the system voluntarily by filing their respective membership forms where they grant their consent to join the system.
It is worth mentioning that electronic notifications have the same effect and validity as those made in accordance with procedural rules, except when a legal provision provides that the notification must be made in person.
