I know a couple of people who work as volunteers assisting children in Mijas who are studying English.  They went to a government office in Malaga.   I would think a google search will find the process on the Internet 

PS. I just did a search. This may help :-

Thread: Certificates of Registries and Legalizations (CRyL)

27 May 2020 07:26:

In spain all Wills are registeted centrally.

The ogininal is held in the records of the notary before whom it was signed, not a by a lawyer.

Thus I see no reason why you need to use a particular gestor / solicitar, or maybe even one at all.  Of course most people use a gestor or other professional as they do not feel capable of doing everything themselves.

It is 183 days in Spain not Schengen

183 days in a Calendar year:  I have never questioned what that means in law.  However, it might be that as a calendar year in Spain coincides with the tax year, one may be able to spend a total of 182 in say 2019 and then another total of 182 in 2020


Myra Azzopardi  of CAB Spain said yesterday in a broadcast on TRE Radio Europe, that if people are forced by the lockdown to stay  longer than permitted, say over staying a visa period, 90 days, etc. the authorities  will ‘forgive / ignore´ it
