I am American and just got married to my Catalan boyfriend. I have been here for quite some time and am "empadronado". I have spent days now browsing and listening to busy tones and looking for information. If anyone out there has gone through the legalisation process, I would love to hear from you and would be greatly and deeply thankful.
There is a lot of information out there, but I have not managed to find out anything about my situation.
Thanks in advance, Mary
