Living in Spain and need a lawyer to help with a divorce?

Many of us only ever use a lawyer a few times in our lives, this could include support when buying a house, dealing with inheritance issues and estates, divorce, family issues or during legal battles.

When it comes to family law, most of us have never experienced this part of the legal world before. At a difficult and emotional time for all parties concerned, it is important that you find the right lawyer to support your needs, someone who will provide the right level of advice for you and your family.
