Q : I want to spend more time with my grandchildren but my daughter-in-law makes this increasingly difficult. Where do I stand legally?
A : This is a terrible situation to be in, however you will be pleased to know that there is a law in Spain that allows you the freedom to see your grandchildren. Basically in Spain you have the legal right to see your grandchildren.
This right is stated in the Spanish Civil Code and it applies to grandparents, siblings, and other relatives of minors. You have the right to request visitation rights through the Spanish Courts.
To do this, you will need a Spanish lawyer, a court runner, and a translator if you do not speak Spanish.
Please note that the Judge always seeks what is best for a child´s interest. The family bond between grandparent and grandchild is seen as beneficial.
