Alaska to Treat Pets More Like Kids in a Divorce

Posted on Mar 23, 2017

Pets ARE Family Too! 

Dallas Divorce Lawyer The Ashmore Law Firm

A recent USA Today news article discusses how Alaska is now treating pets more like children, rather than property, in a divorce matter.

The Courts are now required to take into consideration the best interest of the family pets and their well-being when making decisions. In Texas, pets are still considered property. However, it is not unheard of for courts to order possession schedules for pets.
