I used to own a property with my ex-husband in spain and it was signed over to him
He has not complied with his side of a divorce consent order and gone off to spain owing me £58,000
Are there any investigators in Spain that could track him down
I know the property that we owned jointly at one point but not his NIE number, the house was in Torrevieja, Alicante
Much of the money he has gone off with is what I personally put into the marriage from years of saving

If he now owns the property he will have had to have an nie to put on the escritura at the notary.
If you do a google search there are PI, there is one here on this coast but I cannot for the life of me remember the name!

Unfortunately I do not know his NIE Number, I just have the adress of the house

With that you can get the nie – a lawyer would be able to help you. Good luck!

Used lawbird and now have the NIE number and passport number
He seems to be in the house that we once owned together, but due to a bad consent order allowed the transfer before he paid me

Now looking for Private Investigator to determine whether he is still in Spain
hav NIE Number and passport number and address in Calle Roble, Torretta Torrevieja
Does anyone have a contact e-mail or telephone number for an english speaking P.I
September 25, 2008 at 6:29 pm #86439
Just received information that he is still at Calle Roble
So do not need PI now
Does anyone know what legal options there are in Spain for someone who owes money according to the court in England
How fast is the leagal process, summ concerned is 40,000 UK Pounds
September 25, 2008 at 6:54 pm #86441
In, theory Court orders obtained in one EU country can be enforced in another. Lawbird can guide you on it.
Has, he not got any Assets in the UK ????, You can place a charge on his assets in UK. Take legal advise as issues like above cannot be looked at in isolation.

Thank you shakeel
Goinfg to see Uk solictor in afew days just wanted to get a feel for how complex and costly this was going to be
He sold the assets we owned jointly in UK for 150,000 and left without paying me , apart from the house in spain he is living in ( this was another assett I had to sign over due to a badly constructed consent order) I dont know where he has put the money he has got
Not sure if there is any way its possible to find out where he is holding money either in UK or spain
So the only asset I know about is the spanish property
Do you know if its possible to track down his bank accountS in spain/uk or both if I get a court order in the uk
September 25, 2008 at 8:12 pm #86444
Could be in Gibralter, Andora, Channel Islands.
September 25, 2008 at 8:16 pm #86445
If you know where he is have you confronted him? I can only see that you will go through a costly law case and get nothing, sounds too complex. Think about denouncing him for something or there is always the heavies!

November 9, 2008 at 2:16 pm #87552
Really sorry to hear your trouble, the real problem with Spain is the amount of time its takes to go to court, However a good lawyer can probably put an embargo on his properties but actually making him give you the money will be a long drawn out affair.
If it was in Andalucia i could recomend a brilliant lawyer but you need somone in Murcia.
I think someone else probably mentioned on here that you would best resolving it in a non legal way whatever that happens to be.
Anyway good luck
November 9, 2008 at 2:20 pm #87553
chique. It had taken you so long to find him. I think you have blown it as he will now move out of there.
Did you honestly think that his current partner will be on your side ???
November 9, 2008 at 2:27 pm #87554
He owns the house he is in and would have to find a buyer for it
I now need to move very quicly with a good debt collector
November 9, 2008 at 3:30 pm #87557
He may out of respite accept a lower amount, than pay you! If you are sure that the house belongs to him than urgently place an embargo on the house before you even start looking for a debt collector.
Further if there is a mortgage on the house, than let the lender know that you have an interest in the house on the basis of the court order/s that you have against him. You will have to take legal advise/lawyer to do this.
Once this is done you are protected. He either pays you now or later and until such time he cannot sell
November 9, 2008 at 5:55 pm #87559
The court order in English it will take a while to get the order enforced in Spain
not sure I can get an embargo without the order being in force in Spain, in which time he can do somthing about the ownership
He owns both houses and had a mortgage on one but no mortgage on the house in Fortuna where he is living
I need a creative debt collector I think that might explain to him that it is best to pay his debt.
He told me before he left to Spain
“If someone is stupid enough to let me take the money I will”
Unfortunatel my solicitors were that stupid and I was forced by the court to sign over all my assetts
The second part of the order came into force on 1st July, for him to pay me but now he is in Spain, in effect hiding from the law

If you Google “debt enforcement spain” you will turn up plenty of “creative” sounding characters…
