I am an spanish attorney
I am sorry to have to tell you that you can no manage here in spain in order to change the visa you got now
You have to go out, come back to the US and manage there in the close rspanish consulate with the work contract you got
Neither you or your employeer could solve the visa as long as you are in Spain
but this is considered a break in residencia and I will have to start again with the number of years required for long term residencia
No, its different
In order to get the residncia visa you have to probe 10 years of legal residence in spain
But if you go and come back and probe ten years they will sum both time periods
The cost to return to the USA To resolve this issue is great! I'd rather spend my money here in Spain where it is needed
I andertand, but it is the way
So can you tell me exactly what I need to do?
To get the contract and manage there, it is the best
I have the contract and my social security number and my NIE
Great, but you need to manage since US
What do mean by manage? you can say the word in Spanish
debe tramitar desde US
Tramitar el expediente en extranjería
ok So I must resolve this matter at the Spanish Embassy in the USA. Completing the process there, and it can not be done here. correct?
Yes. That it is
Its the best way
