Hi there, if you never paid the prision time or fines, is not a good idea to came into Spain at all. If they catch you you will be arrested and sent to court, may be imprisioned and on a very big troubles. The only way to be sure if you have a warrant is asking at the court who sentenced you. My advice is to forget to come into Spain.Thank youPlease ask if you have more questions, have a good day

They can no make anything against you for debts here in Spain if you have nothing to be seized

Hi there
Criminal actions have 2 haves to be paid
Once is crminal responsability, prision, wchich you have paid already
The other one is civil responsabiliti, indemnithation that if you can no pay, nothing happens
So, if you paid prision, you were there, and you have nothing to pay, thats all, you have anything to be worried about
Nobody could arrest you again for debts here in Spain
