Thank you for your question. In Spain, the adoption of an adult is an exception to the rule, and it can only be done if, during the minority of the person being adopted (adoptee) there existed, for at least one year, a foster care relationship, with the person who adopts, or at least the person adopting and the adoptee lived together for at least a year (during the minority of the adoptee).
The other conditions for adoption are the same, namely the age difference (minimum 15 years) and the judicial proceeding.
Let me know if you wish to know more. I look forward to your rating which is essential to my activity.
