Managing the Death Abroad of a Loved one

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

Dealing with the death of a loved one abroad differs only from the same occurrence at home by compounding the loss with the logistical challenges involved in navigating foreign legal and, potentially, cultural systems.

For English-speaking expats in Spain or those who have lost a loved one in Spain, our legal service provides comprehensive support to manage all aspects related to death abroad, ensuring that your loved one's final rites are conducted with dignity and in accordance with legal requirements. Typically, this service is intended for:

  • Expats residing in Spain facing the loss of a loved one.
  • Individuals outside of Spain who have lost a family member or friend in the country.
  • Those needing assistance with the legal and administrative aspects of repatriation or local burial/cremation.
