When on holiday or if you reside in Spain the last thing you would expect to happen is to end up in a situation where you get arrested or receive notification to attend a criminal matter at court. If you are detained by the police they can do so for a period of up to 72 hours and in exceptional cases for longer. Before the time elapses you will likely go before a judge and then subsequently released.
This probably won't be the end of the matter and it is likely the investigation will continue and you will be called back at a later date to appear in Court. You must not ignore official documentation from the court or the police and must attend any future hearings or appointments. Failure to do so can result in you being found guilty in your absence and being arrested on entering Spain or other Schengen countries by Interpol.
If you are arrested or receive a notification regarding a criminal offence Victoria and her colleague Jorge an English speaking highly experienced Criminal lawyer are on hand to assist you. We can attend and represent you at the police station and during any court hearings. Further we will talk you through the process and all the available options.
