After 30 years of being a lawyer here in Spain I would recommend that every couple in Spain should have an agreement as to what happens in the event that they split up. You may be cohabiting, be in a common law partnership or you might be married. This agreement can be one before or after you live together.
What is important is that you have an agreement according to the Spanish Law. However, even if you have agreed to certain things for example custody of children or maintenance, this can be reviewed by the Court. It can also be reviewed by the court if the agreement is very much in favour of one of the parties.
As with all my posts this isn’t legal advice, and it is a complex area of the law. If you would like an agreement drafted send us a message. We have English speaking Spanish lawyers who are members of the Bar Association in Spain. All documents of course are written in Spanish and English.
