Hi
I hope someone can help me on this. I have a son who has a spanish father. We split up before my son was born and I returned to England and my son was born here. His dad is named on his UK birth certificate (we had to go to the british embassy in spain to do this)
He has always stayed close to his dad. Apparently I have been told that even though he is named on his birth certificate, he isn't legally recognised as his dads son under spanish law and his Nan in Spain said I need to have his birth certificate translated into Spanish.
Is this correct does anyone know?

My partner is Spanish and our daughter was born in the UK. He went to the Spanish embassy with all our birth certificates and got something called the libro de familia. As far as I know, that's the legal document in Spain which states the patents of a child....

And we didn't need to translate any documents

Thankyou so much for your help. I will message his dad in Spain to do it over there for him. He's got copies of our birth certificates and passports etc
