Service Details

Modification of Family Law Court Orders

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

This service is for individuals who wish to modify or contest a family court order in Spain, especially in light of recent legal amendments concerning child custody. 

The clientele often includes parents facing separation or divorce, who are keen on securing or altering custody arrangements for their children. 

These individuals might be facing challenges due to previously rigid custody laws that generally favoured mothers. With the shift towards promoting shared custody, they now have a chance to seek more balanced custody arrangements. 

This service aims to assist these individuals in navigating the legal landscape, ensuring that the child custody arrangements serve the best interests of the children involved.


The primary requirement is having a legitimate interest or standing in a family court case in Spain, particularly concerning child custody. 

Nationality and visa requirements might not be inherently restrictive for those needing this service, but being a resident or having legal standing in Spain could be important. 

Age may be a factor in some cases, especially when it concerns the voices of older children (13 years or above) being heard in court. 


The procedure to modify or contest a family court order in Spain begins with a thorough evaluation of the existing court order and the circumstances warranting the modification. 

Following this, legal documentation is prepared and filed in the relevant family court. 

The court might require evidence supporting the modification request, which could include expert testimonials, psychological assessments, or other relevant proofs. 

The parties involved may reach an agreement through mediation or leave the decision to the court, which will consider various factors like the child’s emotional needs, the proximity of extended family, the parents' ability and dedication to caring for the child, among others.


  • By engaging this service, clients can work towards obtaining a more favourable or just custody arrangement that reflects the changing societal norms and legal provisions in Spain. 
  • This not only improves the parental rights of the client, but also significantly contributes to the holistic well-being and development of the children involved. 
  • The service aims to reduce the emotional and legal turmoil often associated with custody battles, promoting a smoother transition for families through legal advocacy and support.

  1. Initial Consultation: Understand your current situation, the existing court order, and the desired modifications.
  2. Legal Assessment: Evaluate the legal grounds for requesting a modification and the likelihood of success.
  3. Documentation Preparation: Prepare all necessary documents to be filed in court.
