    Hi, this is a tricky one. I have my NIE, had it since 2009. I got married again in 2013 in LA and changed my surname. My American husband now needs his visa renewing so I took my new passport from 2017 and the old one and my marriage certificate. The woman would not accept my name change for the...

    Hello everyone, So I came to Barcelona on the 22nd July 2017 and apart from about 3 weeks back in London I've remained here since. I think I've been a bit too relaxed about declaring that I plan to live here, as in, I've done nothing about it! As I live with my partner I've not needed to...
