Did you know that as of January 1st, if you are going through a divorce and you have a pet (that is not a service animal), the Judge can consider the well-being of your pet in deciding whether to award joint or sole ownership? This is a shift toward treating pets more like children instead of property. This makes sense since most pet owners think of their dogs and cats as a member of their family and not simply a piece of property. If you would like to know more about this, please contact me.
