Pet Custody

When a romantic relationship comes to an end, two people may be left struggling with the decision of who will get to keep the animal they have both loved and cared for over time. Just as people argue about custody and responsibility of children, people argue over custody of their pets. If a former couple cannot come to a written agreement about visitation or custody, a primary consideration in a court case will be the animal’s best interests.
