As a Spanish Solicitor with international experience I often advise clients as to whether or not they should pursue a legal action under the Spanish justification if they have a choice.
One example of this is divorce. Sometimes it’s in my clients interests to get divorced in Spain as opposed to say the United Kingdom.
When this happens what can be called the race for the jurisdiction begins. What happens is for example one spouse lodges proceedings in for example England as they have been advised that they will receive a more beneficial share of assets and income if they can get divorced there instead of Spain.
It may be the case that legally the Jurisdiction should be Spain. At Just Law Solicitors we can advise as to the correct legal jurisdiction and purse the divorce here in Spain if possible. This often results in a better outcome for our clients.
So if you are living or to use the legal term ‘domiciled’ in Spain and getting divorced don’t automatically assume that for example the United Kingdom is the correct jurisdiction, always take advice.
For all your legal needs in Spain from an NIE number to buying a property here in Spain in 2012. We can also help with non lucrative visas and golden visas. In addition to Spanish taxes and Accounts.
