Who gets the dog?

On Behalf of | Apr 15, 2014 | Family Law

I’m asked quite frequently “Who gets the dog?” The truth- in Florida pets are treated as personal property. One party will receive ownership of the pet and the other will not. The other will not get visitation rights. The courts do however look at who bought the dog, who named it, who walked it to name a few of the things a court may consider. To some people, their pets are like family.
