International Divorce Lawyers


As international divorce lawyers we know the particularities of divorce proceedings in the different member states of the European Union. We deal with cases of international divorce and separation from other countries. Whichever your nationality or country of residence, contact us to share your situation with us.

One of the situations that generates the most stress when deciding to get divorced is the lack of knowledge of the law. If you or your spouse are foreign, you may ask yourself questions such as: “In which country should I file for divorce?”, “Which laws are applicable to my divorce?”, “Can I return to my country of origin with my children?”, “How can I get in touch with my ex if I do not know where he/ she lives?”, etc. At our office, we have a team of expert lawyers in international law that will answer all your questions.

Are you going through any of the situations set out below?


We often get clients that live in a country that is not their country of origin. There are no two cases the same and therefore we carefully study your case to provide personalised attention to achieve the best possible results. 

  • How do you know you need the services of international divorce lawyers? Contact us and we provide you with the necessary information.
  • Have you decided to divorce your foreign spouse? In this case, different important procedural aspects need to be considered. An expert in the field will advise you on how to speed up the process.
  • Did you marry abroad and want to divorce? Multiple variables will need to be taken into account. An in-depth study of said variables will determine the country, court and law that apply in your case.
  • Are you both foreign and want to put an end to your marriage? If you both live in Spain but you are not Spanish, you will need to prove a number of circumstances that allow you to file for divorce in Spain, amongst others that your habitual residence is in Spain.
  • Are you living abroad and want to divorce the spouse you married in Spain? In this situation, both your circumstances as a couple and the rules that apply in the country where you are living will determine how to proceed.
  • Are you foreign and want to get married in Spain? The proceedings are complex and slow but at LAWFAM we can assist you because nothing is more helpful than experience. We will gather the required international documents for you to speed up the process.
  • Do you want a foreign judgment to be recognised in Spain? This is an international procedure. We will inform you of the legal implications and the different ways to request it.
