Default Who gets our cat in the divorce?

Who gets our cat in the divorce?
It was a stray but I am the one that does the daily care.

Now he says the cat is his because he paid the most for it's food and care. Whatever that means. He doesn't even like cats. It seems like a spite issue to me.

I wish to inform you that the laws of your state will have jurisdiction in this matter. Courts have awarded shared custody, visitation and even alimony payments to pet owners. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.

Ask your attorney to deal with it.

If you don't have an attorney in a contested divorce then you're foolish.

If you must want the custody of the cat you should to try to enter into an agreement with your spouse through your attorney rather than fight for it.

The two of you can decide who gets the cat. If you can't decide you will each ask the judge to rule for you and the judge will decide.

Sounds to me like you will get the cat. Hubby is being a butt head it seems.

Obviously that's not happening. Read and understand before posting next time.

Wrong--you don't really know if they even fully discussed the issue yet, or if they discussed it at all.

It could be just an initial off the cuff statement by hubby.

And if they can't decide it, THEN the judge will decide.

Think about it before you write.

It seems pretty obvious, whoever you are.
