HOUSTON — If you have been through a divorce or separation, custody of the kids can be a tough battle. What about your four-legged friend? Our pets are an extension of our families, but what happens if there is a break up in the relationship?
Attorneys Shannon Boudreaux and Kevin Hunter from Boudreaux Hunter & Associates, LLC, talked with Deborah Duncan about what you need to know. In Texas, child custody laws do not apply to pets. In a divorce, pets are considered like other property. Courts look at a variety of factors in determining who will keep the pet, including who purchased the pet, who takes care of the pet and meets the pet's daily needs, and work/travel schedule of each person.
Boudreaux Hunter & Associates, LLC, focuses on family law and takes a collaborative approach.
