Pet Custody Law

When couples split up or divorce, sometimes furry-family members get caught in between. Many people view their dogs and other pets as family members and want to take steps to protect them and their right to see them. Pennsylvania law, however, views pets as property. Pets cannot be the subject of a legal custody arrangement, but they can be included in a property settlement agreement.

Our attorneys at Berman & Asbel, LLP can draft a pre- or post-nuptial agreement or a property settlement agreement to set out exactly who gets custody of your furry-family member in the event you and your significant other split up.
