pension rights and social security for UK ex pats in Spain
I have been a resident in Spain for 14 years, currently living in Almonaster la Real, Huelva. Two years ago my (english) wife died, and through the office of the Social Security (here in Aracena) I was awarded a widow’s pension by the spanish government. However, as I didn’t have enough NI contributions, the UK government (under the EU reciprocal agreement) was asked to pay, from my wife’s considerable contributions paid when we lived there. After waiting an entire year for a response, and receiving none, it was discovered they hadn’t bothered to reply because in the UK there is no widow’s pension for men. This is not correct. First, they had a duty to respond. Second, the spanish law applies here, not what happens in the UK (where there are other benefits to claim instead). If it was the other way round the spanish government would be expected and pressed to pay. Sadly for me the staff at the office here didn’t want to do that, so I ended up with a piece of paper say I had a pension (with the exact amount payable each month calculated from my wife’s earnings in the UK) but nothing else. They did suggest though that I visit my local office of the Servicio Sociales. I was by then (and still am) living with no income and no connection to mains electricity/ water/ sewage. The only thing they could offer was to make an application for emergency financial aid under the “PROGRAMA DE SOLIDARIDAD DE LOS ANDALUCES! This was 11 months ago. Today I received the news that despite having sent the correct documentation SIX times (twice posted by the office of Servicio Sociales) they are still claiming to have never received it all, and the file has been closed. I now have to re-apply from scratch, once more re-sending all the documents. I asked the worker if this would mean that I would receive help, to which he replied it was never going happen, nobody to his knowledge has ever received money from this programme. Instead they claim papers get lost, get you to re-send them, and eventually applicants simply get tired of the hassle and waiting.
Meanwhile I have been totally dependent on the goodwill and charity of local people. Stunned at the way I have been treated, how powerless I am, especially when everyone in authority has assured me I have the right to these benefits.
Is there anything anyone can suggest to get what I am entitled to?

I have been living as a couple with my argentinian partner for 13 years here in spain.
He arrived originally contracted to an argentinian company and thereafter had 2 spanish contracts.However in recent years he has found that no Spanish company would contract him and we have not been able to go to argentina which we wished to do.
We have been waiting for his wife in argentina to divorce him which was finalized last week in order to get the pareja de hecho document for him to stay as advised by his abogado.She had also applied to immigration to let him leave voluntarily if he wished and not to be given an expulsion order.all this was ignored and a week ago he disappeared on the saturday,i was extremely worried and eventually contacted on the following monday by the police who gave me and my 2 children 30 minutes to pack a bag for him to fly to argentina.He was not allowed his abogado or the right to call us and as you can imagine this has been extremely traumatizing for all of us.I was allowed 3 minutes to say goodbye.
If I went to argentina and we married there can he come back to spain legally?

We have visited the Once building in Malaga previously. Now I will be coming to Malaga with my blind husband in a week or so and need to know the address so that we can arrange accommodation quite near for our visit. A Google search has not come up with the address.
We would appreciate some help.

healthcare in spain for expat under retirement age
My husband and I are hoping to move to The Costa Del Sol next year. We will be taking early retirement at the ages of 57yrs and 50yrs. I believe that we will no longer be entitled to free healthcare in Spain but am unsure if we will have to take out private healthcare until we reach retirement age. There are conflicting facts on a variety of web-sites. Thankyou

son residing in spain with his spanish father
My 9 year old son who is a British Citizen with a British passport left the UK last week to reside with his Spanish father in Spain. His father has been keeping in touch but he seems to be under the influence of alcohol and maybe drugs also. I am very worried about my son and I feel he maybe at risk. I gave his father a letter typed by myself and signed to explain that I gave my consent for him to take him out of the country. Could I get my son back without involving the Spanish authorities? My son has only been in Spain for a week but I know his father has already applied for his residency. Can anyone advise me on this worrying subject? I know his father will not hand him back to me even if my son wants to come back to the UK. What can I do??
