Hola! Well, it depends on your case. If you have been in Spain for three years, you can do it from Spain.  If less than three years, you would have to go back to your home country unless you qualify under the highly-qualified worker or entrepreneur schemes. You can find lots of information about all this at this link: http://spainguru.es/residency-options/
