Managing the Death Abroad of a Loved one

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

This service is for people who are dealing with the loss of a family member or friend in Spain, especially those from other countries. 

When someone passes away in Spain, there are many legal steps to follow, which can be complex and stressful, especially for family members who might not be familiar with the Spanish system. 

Our clientele primarily includes expatriates who find the Spanish legal maze daunting, especially while dealing with the grief of loss. This service helps to alleviate this burden.


The process starts with a first meeting to understand the details of your situation. 

After that, we liaise with local authorities and institutions necessary to expedite processes such as obtaining the release of the deceased for transport to another country or for local burial. 

As necessary, our lawyers can liaise with the police and coroner's office, where the death was unexpected.

We ensure that all Spanish laws are complied with.


What Does This Service Consist Of?

  1. Initial Consultation: We’ll obtain all relevant details relating to the circumstances of the deceased in order to understand which processes need to be undertaken.
  2. Paperwork Handling: We'll take care of necessary paperwork, following Spanish laws.
  3. Liaising with Authorities: We’ll communicate with local organizations and official bodies on your behalf.
  4. Repatriation of the deceased: As required, we’ll arrange for the body to be moved back to your home country.
  5. Keeping You Updated: We’ll keep you informed and explain what we’re doing every step of the way.

Our service helps to ease the process, providing solid support as you deal with the loss of a loved one in Spain.
