Yes. In accordance to Spanish law, the Spanish Courts and Tribunals are competent in matters of personal and patrimonial relations between couples, marriage annulment, separation and divorce, when both parties reside in Spain, or at least one, at the time of placing the demand for separation/divorce. Various Spanish Tribunals have confirmed this right in their resolutions, based on articles 24 and 13 of the Spanish Constitution, article 27 of the Civil Code and articles 6,8,14 of the European Convention for the protection of Human rights and fundamental freedom.
