Divorce is for the dogs -- no, really

When people divorce, no matter if they live in California or another part of the United States, they know they are faced with a long process that can entail questions about property division and child custody. As of late, a growing number of couples find themselves fighting over pets in divorce. Similar to a child custody battle, this happens when both parties decide that they want to take ownership of the pet.

When the fur starts flying: pets and divorce

With 62 percent of homes in the U.S. having a pet, it's no wonder that those furry creatures become a sticking point when it comes to divorce. Deciding to divorce is difficult, especially when you consider child custody, child support, alimony and property division. The latter, though, is where your pet comes in. You might believe that Fido or Frisky is a part of your family, but in the eyes of a California court, your pet is nothing more than property.
