Lawyou’s juvenile lawyers are distributed throughout Spain
What is the specialty in minors?
In accordance with article 315 of our Civil Code, the age of majority «begins at the age of eighteen». Likewise, the same article adds that in order to compute the years «the day of birth shall be included in full». Therefore, in Spain, all persons who have not yet reached 18 years of age are minors.
These persons have a special legal treatment, since, although they have legal capacity from birth, not all of them have the capacity to act. Legal capacity is the aptitude to be the holder of subjective rights and legal duties. However, the capacity to act is the aptitude to exercise those rights of which a person is the holder. The latter depends on different variables and each person may have it to a different degree.
We are aware that in all legal relationships involving minors, the best interests of the minor must be paramount. Therefore, we have lawyers specialized in the defense of minors.
