This is where we can help, we have 30 years of experience in helping our clients through those difficult times of divorce or separation, so you can rest assured we will make it as painless as possible.
Up until 1981 divorce was illegal in Spain, then they bought in new laws to address this, but it was still difficult to get a divorce.
Then in 2005, the law was revised and unlike the previous divorce law, the new law does not require any person in the relationship to give any justification whatsoever in order to obtain a divorce, so making divorce very easy.
This also allows Expats married in other countries to obtain a divorce in Spain if one of the parties is a Spanish resident.
