While technically a possibility under the Law of Divorce of 2005 shared custody of children in Spain has been considered an exception and has been awarded in a minority of cases, only occurring in 9.7% of all custody awards made in 2008, for example.
This is changing however and there is an increasing tendency by the Autonomous Communities in Spain to enact legislation compelling judges to consider awarding shared custody of children following a divorce.
Currently four of the 17 autonomous communities have opted to create laws that make the award of shared custody the preferred option for the court hearing a petition for divorce – Aragón, Cataluña, Communidad de Valencia and Navarra.

My solicitor here in Spain did get me a divorce as requested and tried his best to get it recognized in the U.K. unfortunately this has proved impossible. My solicitor here probably not aware of the difficulty at that time but did his utmost best.

Francisco and Carmen did a great job handling my divorce. In this difficult time for me, they handled the issues with understanding and flexibility.
Francisco was very good in court and he could defend well against all the challenges made to the pre-nuptial contract my husband and I signed, so that it was upheld in full.

Alvaro was very helpful and went above and beyond to try to help me in my situation as I needed it to happen as fast as possible.
Even whilst he was on holiday he was in touch and made things happen. would definitely recommend!
Rosa is the consummate professional. Her responses to messages were always prompt and her advice was extremely helpful.
Even when my ex wife employed a lawyer who really didn’t know what he was doing, she was very patient and logical. She provided an excellent service.
She is the best advocate I have ever been associated with. I was a police officer for 30 years and have come into contact with many lawyers. She is amazing!

José was an absolute professional from start to finish. Every deadline was met on time. José made the process for us extremely comfortable and straight forward.
He went over and above his position to help us finalise certain things related to our case, and quite honestly, if you get an opportunity to use his services, you will be more than happy with the outcome.
Thank you again José and I wish you the best for you and for your family!

Colin Wilson, Australia
Overall it was great. Rosa always answered all questions asked and provided clear, concise and well explained answers.
When there was a delay in responding she did offer an apology which was appreciated. Rosa always instilled a sense of confidence that she knew exactly what was going on, what I was asking, and what the applicable law was.
When not a Spanish local and dealing with her remotely, this provided great comfort in a sensitive matter.

Jaime was wonderful - at first I had no idea how I'd get the support I needed in a country I don't know well and a language I'm not fluent in, and he made it a breeze. Would definitely use them again.
From our initial meeting right through to my ultimate divorce (with no unpleasant surprises the entire duration of the entire process), he immediately responded 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.

Mr. 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 English 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.

From the outset, Rosa was extremely professional, approachable, efficient and competent. Her level of English is extraordinary, something very much appreciated as it made life easier for me during an inherently difficult time.
Her correspondence was always relevant, detailed, simply and clearly explained and expressed. Rosa was kindly, matter of fact, calm, patient and always reassuring.
Her pro-active, intelligent, thoughtful and knowledgeable advice helped very much during a particularly delicate and worrying stage of the process.
