Divorce in Spain

Our Spanish divorce lawyers at Piñera del Olmo Canals have helped many clients to reach a divorce.

When filing for a divorce, it is important to find a lawyer who you can trust to deal with your case efficiently.

There are two types of divorce carried out by Spanish lawyers:

  • Divorce by Mutual Agreement
  • Contentious Divorce

A divorce occurs at the end of a marriage, if a couple have chosen to separate.

Given that a marriage is legally binding, it must be dissolved by a lawyer and removed from the Civil Register.

Our firm, Piñera del Olmo Canals, is experienced in helping those who are looking to divorce, whether a mutually agreed divorce or a contentious one. For further information regarding each type of divorce, please read our pages which focus on each type in greater detail.

It is also important to consider other factors which may be involved. This includes child custody, alimony and the separation of property and other assets. In cases where the couple can reach a mutual agreement, they will decide how to share these aspects. Otherwise, the Judge can make this decision.

Once a couple are divorced, this allows each person to re-marry, should they choose to do so in the future.

What to do if you are considering a divorce in Spain:

Our lawyers highlight that, in order to divorce, you should:

  • Have been married for more than three months. This can be overlooked if you are considered to be in danger, with regards to children, your freedom, life etc.
  • Establish a mutual agreement.
