The end of a personal relationship is difficult for everyone involved. Both parties must sift through all of the property and personal items that were purchased during the relationship. Compromise is key, and usually property can be evenly divided allowing everyone to quickly move on.
However, complications can arise when pets are part of the mix. After bonding with an animal and treating him or her as a member of the family, letting go of that animal can be jarring for the party losing the pet.
One way to resolve this issue is with a pet custody agreement, which details each person's right and responsibilities for the pet when the relationship comes to a close. Having an agreement like this can put an early end to disputes about ownership, custody, and expenses, making it easier on everyone involved, including the much-loved pet. We offer an easy-to-use LegalZoom Pet Custody Agreement that protects the interests of both parties, as well as the animal's.
