Valencia, Spain


Thomas Mansfield’s team of specialist international divorce and family lawyers is based in the UK but our clients come from Valencia, Costa Blanca, Costa del Azahar and all areas of Spain. We advise British expats living in Spain, Spanish individuals married to UK nationals and Spanish families living in the UK.

We have Spanish speaking lawyers and a strong association with Spanish law firms in Spain.

Choosing where to divorce

Choosing where to divorce can make a big difference to your case. London is known as the ‘divorce capital of the world’ because, unlike most European countries, the British courts start with the presumption that the matrimonial assets should be divided equally. They also provide for spousal maintenance. If you are considering divorce you should not delay issuing proceedings because the first party to issue proceedings is likely to determine which country the case will be heard in.
