In my Tampa, FL divorce how do I prove ownership of the family pet?

Unfortunately, in Florida and in most states, animals, even though we consider them our family pets are legally considered property.  However, this way of thinking of pets as property is changing as pets are very important and people think of them as family.  In Florida, if your dog or your cat or your other pet is something that was attained during the term of the marriage then the pet would be both of yours. Who attained the pet would not make a difference.  If you bought it with separate non-marital funds it could be considered yours alone.  If you owned the pet before the marriage it would be considered yours alone. Just like the vase that you have on your counter, if you bought it during the marriage the court’s going to try to find some way to divide that property in your divorce.  There are more and more cases where visitation and custody issues are considered as with children.  Call 813-672-1900 or email us to schedule a free consultation to discuss any of your Tampa divorce case issues.  We at All Family Law Group, P.A. are here to help!
