In Arizona, pets are considered property during a dissolution. Ownership typically goes to one party. However, many people view pets as beloved companions and losing ownership can have an impact emotionally. With collaborative divorce, you can address custody of your pets in a more beneficial way.
In a traditional, litigated divorce in Arizona, the court considers pets to be property. Pets and divorce don’t mix well with the traditional system. However, collaborative divorce expands your options and treats your pets like part of the family.
