Client Testimonials

“I first contacted Paul because we needed an interpreter to help resolve an issue at Sevillana, the electricity company. He was very efficient and effective and the problem was quickly solved. I have since used Paul in other official settings, including my bank, Unicaja, the Provincial Payments Office and the Administrator of our Community of Owners. Excellent value for money.”

Divorce was legalised in Spain 30 years ago yesterday on 7 July, 1981. Along with Ireland, Italy and Portugal, divorce came rather later to these traditional Roman Catholic strongholds than to other European countries.


The first Spanish woman to get a divorce, in September of that year, was Julia Ibars, now 57 and living in Alhaurín de la Torre.
