Hi, this is Alastair and Alison,
In 2014, we were in your shoes. We wanted to move to Spain, but we had no idea what we needed to do to make it happen. What visa or residency permit was best, and how did we even start the application process? We had a million things to do, and we did not need this uncertainty.
From the start, communication was sporadic. Pricing was unclear. We had unnecessary 7am trips to Barcelona police stations and mix-ups with appointments.
And what happened next was nothing short of heartbreaking.
Our son’s application was rejected.
After MONTHS of preparation, we had to start the entire process from scratch. All the time standing in immigration queues like cattle was to no avail.
There HAD to be an easier way!
We have found Barcelona partners who deliver everything we would have loved to have had when we moved to Spain.
My situation was complicated and I was confused. I was moving between the UK and Spain over the next five years and had no idea which visa or residency card I needed. During my consultation with the wherecani.live lawyer, they listened to me and then identified a straightforward solution saving me a lot of time and two thousand euros by not applying for the wrong visa. I highly recommend them.

Raquel was very helpful. I would recommend them to anyone. She was very clear in explaining the process and requirements. I was thrilled at the end of the meeting to know that I had a good chance of being accepted. I have signed up with them to help me with the whole visa process.

It went very well. The lawyer was very pleasant and helpful. I was also pleased to see how much they can help and the cost of the services. I am just starting the process of a non-lucrative visa for Spain and have engaged them to help me.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What will the lawyer cost?
Every application varies, and so very few lawyers publish a price list. However, your lawyer should be able to give you an accurate quote once you have had your initial consultation and agreed on the required services. Don’t proceed without a clear quote for the complete service. If a lawyer has prices quoted on their website, check to make sure it covers all parts of the service and there are no surprise add-ons and exclusions. And, does your fee cover an administrative appeal if your application is rejected?
If I do use a lawyer, what services will they offer?
Lawyers in Spain offer a massive range of services. The firm you engage with should match your requirements. Some people opt for the full valet service, others just want their application checked prior to submission. Some firms only focus on specific areas of immigration law or a specific area of Spain.
Why should I pay for a consultation?
Many reputable immigration firms in Europe charge for a consultation. This allows them to take enough time to understand your situation and to give you an honest assessment of your situation. And it means you’ll meet with a qualified immigration lawyer and not the intern or admin. Free consultations are sometimes just a marketing strategy to push a standard sales pitch.
Why should I use the Where Can I Live Spain partner?
We have a detailed selection process for all our partners. We are so confident of the quality of their service and value that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. We’ll only ask why you were unhappy to improve our service, you’ll get your money back immediately no matter the answer.
Will my application be accepted?
There is no guarantee. Each consulate has slightly different processes. And the requirements change over time. However, a good partner will understand those details and ensure you don’t submit an application before it has the best possible chance of being approved.
Does your Spain Partner speak English?
Yes, they speak fluent English.
Has COVID impacted being able to move to Spain?
Yes, the pandemic has impacted processing times and logistics. And, given the continuously changing circumstances, it is hard to be definitive. What we do know is that applications are still being accepted and processed, but with some delays. And, as the vaccine rollout accelerates in Spain and around the world the situation will improve.
