Default Re: Who gets our beautiful dog in the divorce?

I wish to inform you that the pet is considered a property and property law in Texas will have jurisdiction in the matter. A divorce is a trying time not only for the family but also for the pet. You may agree to a shared custody with visitation rights and shared expenses. If you are unable to reach agreement in the matter, the Court will decide the matter. It will keep in view the best interests of the pet. The Court will consider the following factors - Which party primarily takes care of the pet's daily needs?; Which party is the pet more "attached" to?; Which party is responsible for training of the pet?; and after the divorce which party is better able to financially care for the pet? You may contact your attorney and seek guidance in the matter.
