In my Florida divorce case, how do I prove ownership of the dog?

Unfortunately, in Florida and in most states, animals, even though we consider them our family, they’re really considered property. In Florida, if your dog or your cat or your other pet is something that was bought during the term of the marriage that would be considered marital property. The ownership doesn’t really matter. If you bought it with separate funds it could be consider your separate, it could be considered your separate property. If you owned it before the marriage it would be considered yours, but it’s really hard to determine. 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.
