Wheat Ridge Family Law Attorney | Pet Custody in Divorce Cases

dogs-2195708_640.jpgIn Wheat Ridge, Arvada, and Golden, there is no specific statute that discusses pet custody. In fact, under law, pets are considered property, so there is no real standard on how to treat family dogs and cats in a divorce. While many people feel their pet is like a child to them, pets are not equivalent to children in the Jefferson County Court. Because of this, a judge cannot order a cat or dog custody hearing. It just doesn't work that way. Instead pets are added to the list of marital property, like your house, financial accounts, and photographs.
