Complaints & Police Processes

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

This service is ideal for individuals residing in Spain, who find themselves needing to initiate a formal police complaint against another individual. 

Often, these clients are victims of crimes or grievances, such as theft, assault, or harassment. 

They are often facing challenging situations, where navigating the complexities of the Spanish legal system can be daunting. 

Our service aims to alleviate these burdens by providing expert guidance through the legal intricacies. 

This is especially beneficial for those unfamiliar with the legal proceedings in Spain, including expatriates or non-Spanish speakers. 

The service ensures that their rights are protected and that they can effectively articulate their grievances to the authorities, thereby initiating a proper legal response to their situation.


To utilize this service, there are no stringent nationality or visa requirements. It is accessible to both Spanish nationals and foreigners residing in Spain. 

The primary requirement is that the incident prompting the police complaint must have occurred within Spanish jurisdiction. Clients should be able to provide some form of evidence or testimony related to the incident, although the specifics can vary. 


The legal procedure for filing a police complaint in Spain involves several key steps. 

Initially, we will gather detailed information about the incident and any evidence you may have. This includes witness statements, photographs, or any relevant documents. 

Then, we draft and file the formal complaint with the police, ensuring it articulately captures the essence of your grievance. If necessary, we can also assist in communicating with the police and other authorities, providing translation services if required. 

If the case escalates to legal proceedings, we will represent you and provide legal advocacy to ensure your interests are adequately represented.


Upon successful completion of this service, clients gain several significant benefits. 

Firstly, there's the assurance that their complaint is professionally handled, maximizing the chances of a favourable outcome. This can lead to legal action against the perpetrator, serving justice and potentially preventing future incidents. 

Additionally, clients often experience a sense of relief and empowerment, knowing they have taken formal steps to address their grievances. 

For non-Spanish speakers or those unfamiliar with local laws, our service removes language barriers and cultural misunderstandings, ensuring their complaint is understood and taken seriously by the authorities.

What Does This Service Consist Of?

The service includes a comprehensive set of activities aimed at effectively managing your police complaint in Spain. 

  1. Initially, we conduct a thorough consultation to understand the details of your case. 
  2. This is followed by gathering and organizing all necessary evidence and documentation. 
  3. We then draft and submit the police complaint on your behalf, ensuring legal accuracy and clarity. 
  4. Throughout the process, we offer continuous support and advice, including assistance with communication with the police and other authorities. 
  5. If required, we provide representation in any legal proceedings that may arise from the complaint. 

Our goal is to ensure a smooth, efficient process, relieving you of the stress and complexities involved in navigating the legal system in Spain.
