You can't get a family reunion visa if you have only lived legally in Spain for less than a year.

Which Family Members Can Obtain a Spain spouse visa?

Spouse or partner of the applicant who is listed in the public registry and with whom the applicant established a relationship prior to relocating to Spain. This individual must be added to the public registry.

Children who are either the applicant's own or the applicant's spouse's or partners. Examples of these include children who are under the age of 18 and youngsters who are unable to care for their own needs owing to their current state of health.
