Hello all,
I have a quick question; I am a Nigerian, married to a British in Spain. I was issued a communitario resident permit after the marraige, my wife and I moved to UK after about a year in Spain, now the Five year resident is about to expire hence we need to go back to Spain to renew the resident permit. The question is, while here in UK, my wife's passport expired and she got another passport with my surname as her surname (i.e. she changed her surname to my surname), will this (the chage of name in her passport) be problem while renewing my papers in Spain?
