THE EFFECTS of the appeal are the consequences of the proceedings produced. Thes
e effects are: 1 .- Effect of suspension, and 2 .- Effect devolution.

The appeal may be granted in both effects or purposes of review only. The latter is the transcendent and corresponds to an essential effect, since under it empo wers the High Court for hearing the appeal suspensive effect, however is the nat ure of the appeal and not of the essence, so the legislature may modify, remove and disposal brings the distinction between the appeal granted in both effects a nd granted the sole purposes of review.

When the appeal is granted in both, there is only one court with jurisdiction to continue hearing the case: the Court of Appeals. However, when the appeal is gr anted in the sole purposes of review, there are two competent tribunals to hear the case: a) The Court of first instance can continue sitting until it reaches t he decision appealed against, and / or to the end of the procedure b) The Court of Appeal has jurisdiction that gives the power to hear and determine the appeal

In Chile, the general rule is that the appeal is granted in the sole purposes of

review, that is, the jurisdiction of the Court of first instance remains.
The effect devolution transferred jurisdiction to the Court of Appeal and that c

ompetition includes the power to review both the facts and the law. However, suc

There are, however, some exceptions to this general rule: 1st. The Court of Appe al can know all the exceptions or defenses rejected in the first instance and on which it has pronounced the sentence pronounced by the lower court hierarchy as incompatible with the welcome. 2nd The Court may make such statements of job th at the law will be binding even if not appealed the ruling contains (art. 209), for example, his absolute incompetence, the absolute invalidity, implication, et c..

c) Third Degree (The general rule in civil matters is that the Court of Appeal c an not go beyond what has been appealed, nor can become the second-instance ruli ng against the appellant, unless there is cross appeal ) However, in criminal ma tters may become the ruling against the appellant.

RESOLUTIONS subject to appeal:

Are appealable final judgments and interlocutory decisions of first instance.
