Default Recovering Spanish citizenship

Greetings,

I recently discovered that I have the right to Spanish citizenship, but only after living in Spain for a year. My question is: Has anyone on this forum done this? I haven't been able to find much information online about this process nor the forms. Can anyone on here give some insight into this?

You will have to give us more information or check on the Spanish Embassy site for the country you are a resident in.

I thought it was quite a complicated and drawn out procedure

The embassy/consulate sites don't have this information. They sent me to the Minister of Justice site, where I couldn't find the information either. From what I understand, you just register once you're in Spain and after a year file the petition before the Presiding Judge of the Civil Registry of my domicile in Spain. I just couldn't find the required documentation nor petition/application form online. I was hoping someone on here had gone through this process or knew someone who had.

I have ABSOLUTELY NEVER heard of this. If the Embassy site does not have it then I suggest you approach the Embassy direct. The Ambassador is Spain's representative in your country. If you can make no progress then I suggest you ask your lawyer.

My guess is that you are British and are talking about becoming a resident legally via padron et cetera, am I right ?

I would be recovering it from my grandmother, who was originally Spanish. So, back to the topic at hand...
