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.
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.
While many women choose to keep their married name after a divorce, others do not. There are those that want to have their name changed back to their maiden names or names from a previous marriage. Some women continue to use their name from before the marriage because of their careers. Then there are those who take their husband's name, but continue to be known by their name before the nuptials. This is the case with Jennifer Lopez.
When a couple makes the difficult decision to divorce, it's highly likely that both parties will experience some degree of conflicted emotions, including sadness, anger and anxiety.
