Fines arising from Coronavirus Restrictions

Coronavirus fine: Fines arising from Coronavirus Restrictions

Thousands of people in Spain have received fines as a result of contravening the laws in place as a result of the State of Emergency declared in Spain in order to contain the Coronavirus pandemic. Usually this is confirmed by tickets being handed-out by police in the streets.

However, in legal terms, these are just propositions of fines that will have to be processed formally by the Spanish Government, within 12 months from the day that the fine took place. An appeal can therefore be successful if the Government fails to process the fine – including any appeal against it – within that time-frame.

Apeal fines arising from Coronavirus Restrictions

In order to begin an appeal it is necessary for confirmation of the fine to arrive at the residence of the person fined, in the normal way. Once this happens, we would strongly recommend anyone who has received such a fine to contact Advocate Abroad with a view to appealing the fine. Full details of the process and how such fines may be successfully appealed are available upon request.

    Initially I had a lot of communication but as time went on it was difficult to get prompt responses and I felt frustrated by the Spanish system and lack of understanding.


    It has now been transferred to the UK but this was done through the court and not the solicitor. it took 3 months for our file to turn up in the UK and I think that was more by luck.


    More regular communication especially as we didn't know the Spanish legal system.

    We have recently had to employ the services of a lawyer, to deal with a very serious and distressing problem. We found Alvero and made a phone call to him ,within seconds of speaking to him he proved to be the lawyer to represent us.


    His knowledge of our particular problem was in depth and precise he listened carefully and gave us really sound and honest advice. His professionalism in handling our case has been impressive to say the least but he has also remained sympathetic and constantly kept us up to date with everything he has been doing at every stage.


    This has helped to minimize the stress at this extremely stressful time I would have no hesitation in recommending Alvero. His professionalism and whole attitude towards his clients is second to none
