Hi there
José M spanish atorney
In order to get rigts to see her you need a court sentence which says them
You say you have to pay her 200 euros, but I do not Know if it becomes from a judicial order or not.
If you have rights to see her from a UK sentence is valid in Spain
If you do not have a judicial order you will need one which tell you your rights and enforcemts, how much you have to pay an so on
You could demand in court in Spain the order and It will tell you the timetable to see her
As a regular rule in Spain, the father has the right to have the minor on week end every 15 days and the half time of the school holydays
Thank you

hi again going back to your answer you ask about the maintenance money. this was agreed amicable when I came back to the uk in 2011 . my ex is also british she lives at a villa owned by her grandfather who resides in the uk.what should my next step be in my rights to see my daughter and a legel maintence payment. my daughter was born in spain. thank you mark

In all cases, an agree is always the best way to manage this matter
You two have to try to get an agree about the time table to share your time with the minor and in order to get legal security for both of you, to put the agreement into court with the help of a local atorney
With that you will have always security to know your rights to visit and have your minor with you
Thank you
