Family reunification, a dream that is legally possible

Family reunification, a dream that is legally possible

Cristina Sáez still remembers the day she left her home and thought: "mum, dad, brothers, family... I have to go and look for a better future for everyone, for me". 

A decision that represented a mixture of emotions. Growing up, facing a world he did not know, learning many new things. And also that recurring desire to share every moment, every place, every experience with her family and friends. "How my mum would love this park", "I can imagine my dad on this beach", "I miss my grandmother so much! Have you ever felt like that?

She remembers that thought as the first step towards great achievements. Her idea of seeking a better future materialised the moment she realised that it was entirely feasible to reunite her family in their new, safe and happy environment.

How did he find out? When he realised that Spanish legislation allowed family reunification and he said to himself: I'm going to ask them to come and live here!

Cristina sought the advice of a specialist lawyer. The first thing they recommended was to identify the type of profile she had in the eyes of the law: EU citizen or resident with valid authorisation. In both cases it is possible to carry out the procedure, each with its own particularities:

  • Family members of EU citizens (EU citizen's family card)

In this category we can process the reunification of dependent ascendants, spouse, unmarried partner (registered or not), descendants under 21 or over 21 (dependent or incapable), or any other family member. What the doctrine calls "extended family".

  • Family members of residents with renewed authorisation or in the process of renewing authorisation (Family reunification. Ordinary regime)

In this category we can process the reunification of the spouse, descendants under 21 years of age or ascendants over 65 years of age. It is important that the applicant is a holder of a long-term residence card.

Cristina found all the information for the submission of this application on the Immigration Web Portal of the Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migration of the Government of Spain.

Curiaras that are worth gold

 Cristina explains that the requirements for both procedures are similar. However, she emphasises the following: "If you have a dependent family member, you have to prove it, among other things, by sending remittances.

She is a registered user of Curiara and from the outset, she made sure that the money transfers to her relatives were made between 12 and 24 months (she tells us that each procedure has a particular frequency). The most important thing is that the money should be sent through an authorised means, such as Curiara, which can provide legal support. "The amount must be equivalent to 10% of the per capita value of the country of residence where your family member is located.

Curiara is a company that has all the certifications required to prove the legality of economic support for family members. Our remittances generate valid receipts to contribute to the regrouping process.

The story of the Sáez-Castillo family is a model that can inspire many, the important thing is to record every help you send to your relatives as a step towards being closer to your loved ones.

Organise each receipt of your remittances, check the documents to be provided according to your profile and with the illusion of being able to bring your people together, you will achieve your goal. You can always count on us!

We remind you that you can also count on the advice of the Tu Gestión España team. who will be able to guide the process.
