Does Owning A Dog Complicate The Divorce Procedure?
Being a dog owner is one of the most awesome feelings. You come home tired, and it is your beloved four-legged pooch who will welcome you to the house with a sweet hug. As you open your heart and arms to hug this gentle creature, your stress of the tiresome work day will disappear in no time. Sounds shocking? It should not be! Because dog owners know this already.
Owning a dog is a whole new feeling that can not be explained to common mortals who do not own a dog. Frankly speaking, owning a dog makes you a loving and caring human being. You simply can not be rude while your angelic pooch is around. Naturally, you will be compassionate, loving, and caring.
Thus, it is no secret that dog owners are one of the happiest people on earth. They are less vulnerable to mental illnesses like stress, depression, or anxiety. But life is full of uncertainties, as we all know. More often than not, things may turn south whether we like them or not. POarting ways are one of these uncertain life circumstances. Frankly, dog owners may also end up parting ways with their life partners.
At this point, some people may assume that being a dog owner has got nothing to do with divorce. Do you think so too? If you do, it is about time to reflect and understand that being a dog owner definitely impacts the divorce procedure. It is as crucial as a money dispute following divorce.
With that said, here is how the little pooch will make the divorce procedure messy.
How Does Being a Dog Owner Affect the Divorce Procedure?
Here is what is going to happen after divorce – for dog owners:
The court will have to make a decision on who will own the pet after the separation.
Both of the parties will have to mutually agree on affording the expenses of the dog.
Since the two parties are calling it quits, the one who decides to own will afford the pet’s expenses.
Until now, things have been pretty straightforward for both parties. Since one of them will continue owning the dog, he or she will be responsible for the pet’s expenses.
But things get messy when none of the two parties is ready to ‘disown’ the dog. If the husband says that he will continue owning the dog – with his explanations – the wife may not agree with it. Thus, the little pooch will give both of them a tough time.
That is why it is recommended that life partners have a “previous talk” about the ownership of the pet well before things turn south. In turn, this will help couples avoid any major skirmish when they decide to part ways.
