Hi Valerie,

You have not mentioned your nationalities. However as a general rule, unless you have any Spanish ancestors, you were born in Spain, married to a Spaniard, or come from certain South American countries, or others such as Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea, Portugal, or are of Sephardic origin, you will need to demonstrate that you have been resident in Spain for ten years.
