Lawyers of Lawyou are distributed throughout the national territory and are also specialists in issues of minors.
What is the specialization in minors?
In accordance with article 315 of our Civil Code, the age of majority “begins at eighteen years of age”. Likewise, the same article adds that to calculate the years “the day of birth will be included in full”. Therefore, in Spain all persons who have not yet reached the age of 18 will be minors.
These people have a special legal treatment, since, although they have legal capacity since birth, not everyone has the capacity to act. The legal capacity is the aptitude to be holder of subjective rights and legal duties. However, the ability to act is the ability to exercise those rights that a person owns. The second depends on different variables and each person can have it in different degrees.
We are aware that in all legal relationships involving minors, the best interests of the minor must prevail. Therefore, we have specialized lawyers in defense of minors. More specifically, we can advise you on issues such as the following:
• Higher interest of the minor
• Right of the child to be heard
• Measures of care and foster care in situations of helplessness
• Child abduction
• Rights of the minor
• Crimes of minors
• Shared and exclusive custody in divorce cases
• Child protection mechanisms
The issues of minors are mostly related to family law, specifically, filiation and guardianship. However, we also find cases of minors in other areas, such as criminal law.
