My wife & I are divorcing after 4 1/2 years. We purchased two dogs at the same time shortly after the wedding. We have decided to each take one dog and even agree on who gets which one. However, my wife insists on the visitation of my dog. We live in New York and have no children. Can’t we each take our respective dog and go on our separate way, or will the court complicate things and tie me to this woman with pet visitation for the life of my dog??!!
You should seriously consider mediating your divorce so that this issue of the dog visitations and all other matters can be worked out and reduced to writing in a legal Separation Agreement. I believe that since this issue is a sensitive one, it not be left to a court to decide.
If you are located in the NYC metropolitan area, please call me to arrange an appointment.
