So you have recibed a penalty for 3 years ...
Yes, and I'm so scared I really dont know what to do
The best way to act now its to contact a local attorney who study a way to manage with the fiscal to pay an economic fine in order no to go to jail
In Spain with penalties over 2 years you could be sended to jail
But as long as you are out of Spain maybe they could put an economical fine in order to avoid more problems
Now I'm in the UK is there anyway they can come and get me, whilest i trying to sort it
No way, they can no reach you as long as you are in UK
UK is not going to give you to spanish police
The problem could become if you go out os UK
So they couldn't get a warrant to come and get me
The best way is try to manage an arregement with the judge
No, no as long as you stay in UK
Are you 100% sure that I'm safe in the UK?
Sure 100 per cent sure
Just in UK
Because you are a UK citicen
States do not give to their nationals to other countries
But you could negotiate the fine, with money or jai in UK
Jail in UK I mean
Oh thank you so much, so with the letter i received it says to sign and send back to say i have received the documents, shall i do so.
do you think that i would just be able to pay with no jail time?
Also i didn't get to fight my case, so i had no say
Yes you have the chance to manage ana greement for sure
Do nor forget the case and contract a local attorney there who speaks english an manage an agrement for you
right ok, shall i sign the letter and send back? or just leave it until i speak to and attorney?
