How clients rate our Divorce Service...

Advocate Abroad seeks client feedback to ensure continued high-quality service provision.
Jose was extremely efficient and responsive and very transparent regarding fees. He took time to get to know me and understand my personal circumstances. He obtained copies of legal documents in record time and explained my options to me in careful detail. He is professional without being intimidating, or full of legal jargon, and I felt able to ask any questions I had. I found him easy to communicate with as his English is flawless. I dealt with two other lawyers in Spain prior to Jose and found him the best of the three. I plan to use his services again if I need legal help in the future, and I am more than happy to recommend him.

Who Is This Service For?

Our divorce legal service in Spain is designed to assist individuals who are seeking to end their marriages within the Spanish legal system, especially those who are not Spanish nationals or who married abroad and now face the complexities of divorce proceedings in Spain. 

Many of our clients are expatriates or foreigners living in Spain, and they often encounter language barriers and unfamiliarity with Spanish family laws.

Clients who benefit from our service typically face problems related to language, navigating foreign legal procedures, understanding their rights, and dealing with the emotional challenges of divorce in a foreign country. 

We provide essential support, guidance, and legal representation to help them overcome these difficulties and successfully navigate the divorce process in Spain.

Requirements

To utilize our divorce in Spain service, there are a few key requirements:

  1. Residency in Spain: Either you or your spouse must be a resident in Spain or have had your last place of residence as a married couple in Spain, even if the marriage was not registered in Spain.
  2. Duration of Marriage: The marriage must have lasted for a minimum of three months before divorce proceedings can be initiated.
  3. Mutual Consent or Contested Divorce: You can either proceed with a mutual consent divorce, where both spouses agree to the terms, or a contested divorce, where there are disputes that need to be resolved in court.
  4. Complexity: The complexity and cost of the divorce can vary based on factors such as the level of agreement between spouses, child custody arrangements, asset distribution, and the presence of prenuptial agreements.
