Service Details

Non-Payment of Child Maintenance

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

Individuals in need of enforcing a child maintenance order in Spain are those primarily dealing with the aftermath of a divorce or separation, where children are involved. 

The problems our clients face usually revolve around ensuring the right amount of child support is determined and paid timely, adhering to the legal framework of child maintenance in Spain. 

The service aims to navigate the legal landscape, ensuring that child support agreements or court orders are honoured and, if necessary, revised to reflect any change in circumstances.


The primary requirement for utilizing this service is having a legitimate child maintenance concern within the jurisdiction of Spain. 

The age of the child or children involved also plays a significant role, as the law stipulates different provisions for minors and those over 18 who are yet to achieve economic independence. 

The service is designed to cater to a broad spectrum of individuals, irrespective of their nationality, as long as the child support issue pertains to Spanish law.


The procedure begins with an initial consultation to understand the specifics of the child maintenance issue. Following this, a review of any existing child support agreements or court orders is undertaken. 

If the current arrangements are found lacking or unfair, or in the event of non-compliance with an existing order, legal action is initiated to enforce the order. 

Throughout the procedure, the service ensures compliance with Spanish laws governing child maintenance, ensuring a fair outcome for all parties involved.


Clients benefit from a structured and legally compliant approach to resolving child maintenance issues, which often leads to a fair and sustainable child support arrangement.

This service facilitates smoother negotiations, accurate determination of maintenance amounts, and enforcement of orders, thus alleviating financial uncertainties. 

Additionally, ensuring that child support payments are fair and timely contributes to the child’s well-being, stability, and continuity of education and other essential needs. 

Moreover, the legal support provided helps in navigating complex situations, especially when circumstances change, requiring a modification of the maintenance order.

What Does This Service Consist Of?

  1. Initial Consultation: Understanding your unique situation, including financial circumstances and the needs of the child and explaining child maintenance obligations under Spanish law.
  2. Review of Existing Agreements/Orders: Assessing the  adequacy of any existing child support arrangements.
  3. Negotiation with Other Party: If necessary, initiating negotiations to agree on a fair amount of child support.
  4. Legal Representation: Representing the client in court, if a new order or modification of an existing order is needed.
  5. Enforcement Actions: Taking legal actions to enforce existing child support orders, ensuring the child receives the stipulated support.
  6. Regular Updates: Keeping you informed of any developments in their case, ensuring you understand the ongoing process.

This service aims to offer a comprehensive solution to child maintenance issues in Spain, ensuring that the child’s financial needs are met while adhering to the legal framework governing child support in the country.
