4 Tips for Pet Custody After Divorce
When people ponder custody issues, they usually think about children of divorcing couples. However, in the past few decades there has been a significant shift in how most Americans treat and consider their pets. If you are undergoing a divorce, you may be one of millions of Americans that considers your pet to be a full-fledged family member or something similar. You and your soon-to-be ex-spouse may subsequently disagree about who should have your beloved dog, cat, or other such pet.
Caring For a Pet During Divorce
If you have concerns about pet custody or other issues during divorce, consider these four tips for helping ease this transition:
- Discuss your pet custody concerns with an experienced custody attorney.
- Try to keep things as routine as possible for the benefit of your pet, such as feeding or walking schedules.
- Determine who will be able to take better care of the pet; for instance, if one of you travels frequently, that person may not be the best primary caretaker of the pet.
- Know that your pet is sensitive to your stress and moods, so try stress-relieving techniques to help steady yourself for your pet.
