- Julie Smith, TorrellanoFriday, April 20, 2018I can't compliment my solicitor enough.
From our initial meeting right through to my ultimate divorce (with no unpleasant surprises the entire duration of the entire process), he immediately respo...nded to my many enquiries, always had mine and my daughter's best interests at the forefront of any considerations and was well worth every penny of his extremely reasonable fee.
Excellent value for money, totally approachable and very professional and understanding. I highly recommend him and will continue to retain his services for other matters in the future.

- Eric Van Der Straeten, BelgiumFriday, November 17, 2017Mr. Sempere Gelardo was a pleasure to work with. This lawyer has an understanding of difficult matters that surpasses most of his colleagues.
He replied to my demand the next day and in fluent Engl...ish assisted me in the case I presented to him.
His professionalism, together with a lot of empathy, gave me a feeling of security. The results were of the same high standard.
I can only thank him and would recommend him to anybody who is in need of legal assistance in the region of Alicante.
- S Smith, EsteponaTuesday, September 12, 2017Being English in Spain and fighting a child custody and divorce case here is extremely difficult.
I originally had an only Spanish speaking lawyer and after 2 years of everything taking ages inclu...ding just responses from my lawyer plus with the language barrier I decided to make the difficult decision to change my lawyer to Alvaro.
Immediately and quickly Alvaro got an understanding of the case and was able to advise me. I was now able to understand myself what was going on and he worked to a new pace that had previously been lacking and that was needed to win the case.
Communication and response from Alvaro was always immediate and his recommendations were always correct. He is very professional and approachable person, and a very good lawyer. With his help and guidance I won the case and without any hesitation I would highly recommend Alvaro as a lawyer to anyone.

Express Divorce Service in Spain
Advocate Abroad’s network of family solicitors can provide you with an express divorce service across the Spanish mainland and islands.
The network is composed of independent English-speaking lawyers that have plenty of experience in dealing with family law issues, particularly those that involve clients not from Spain.
The lawyers have been specifically invited to join the network because of their experience, their level of English and because they are competitively priced. Moreover the lawyers are competitively priced when compared to standard prices charged to Spanish clients for the same services.
Each lawyer will provide a quotation in advance, which we would invite you to compare with other service providers. Of course the independent lawyers on our network are not only competitively priced but in addition offer legal service in English.
What services will your lawyer offer?
Your lawyer will be able to offer any of the following services as required:
- Preparation of the Convenio or Divorce Agreement
- Filing of the relevant documentation with the court
- Advice and assistance throughout the process
- Remote assistance where a spouse is unable to attend
- Transfer of title where assets are assigned
What issues will your lawyer address?
Your lawyer will be able to provide you with advice on the express divorce process itself as well as the legal options that exist and their implications.
Your lawyer will typically invite you to discuss your preferred outcome and will then work with both spouses to draw-up the agreement necessary to reflect this.
While the Law Societies across Spain were once able to control the cost of legal services by establishing permitted tariffs, a landmark court case has since ruled that this is not constitutional.
Accordingly, it is now permissible for lawyers in Spain to quote as much (or as little) as they wish for legal services. This has resulted in a wide disparity in the quotations made for the same service – often by more than 100%.
In order to ensure that our clients always receive competitively priced quotations, Advocate Abroad invites on to it’s network only those lawyers who continue to adhere to the pricing recommendations of the Spanish Law Societies.
Furthermore, each client can obtain a written agreement to that effect as well as receiving a legally binding quotation (see free innovative support services below).
