Jenga is right get professional advice. There is a place called the English Advisory Service i think in Torre Del Mar.

But briefly my understanding is that post October 31st with no Deal we will have to apply for a Foreigners Identity Card as your wife would have to do from day one of any permanent residence. If you as a Brit have no Residency before that it won't be impossible to apply but more difficult. But go to EAS they will help you.
