Get The Best Legal Advice If You Are Facing A Pet Custody Battle Or Agreementby DAVIS BROWN PRC Agency
Are you and your partner separating or getting a divorce? Do you know what will happen to your pets? Have you discussed the custody of your pets? If you need specialist legal advice, this report can help you!
A specialist law firm in Armonk, NY has launched a new legal report to help you and other pet owners if you are going through a custody battle after a divorce. Jafri Law Firm explains that unless you have a prenup in place stating where your pets will live following a divorce, it is likely you will need legal help to establish how to handle your pet custody agreement.

The newly launched report highlights a recent celebrity example whereby a judge decided a high-profile couple would get joint custody of their chocolate Labrador as it was in the dog’s best interest. Both parties agreed the dog’s welfare was their primary concern.
Jafri Law Firm says that many local jurisdictions do not consider your pets as being members of your family. This means your pets are likely to be placed in the same legal category as your belongings, particularly if your pet is an expensive pedigree breed or designer dog.
To overcome the issues that can arise if you and your partner separate or file for the divorce, the team explain you should consider who spends more time with your pet. You should also establish if your pet has a better or stronger bond with you or your partner.
Jafri Law Firm argues it is better to have these conversations ahead of time as in worst case scenarios pets are abandoned or taken to shelters because neither partner can determine how to proceed with a custody agreement.
As you may be aware, many pets are more comfortable remaining in the home they have become accustomed to, with the routine they expect. Pets do not understand divorce although they may be aware things have changed. Making your pet’s wellbeing the priority during any divorce proceedings or settlement is key.
A company spokesperson said: “People who want sole custody of their pet may be able to petition the court for ownership if they can provide evidence such as their named being listed as the owner on the pet’s registration or adoption papers, financial records or receipts of food purchases, photos, and evidence showing they are the pet’s primary caregiver.”
