A couple in another state is having an unusual custody battle. While many people might fight for custody of their children in a divorce case, the couple is fighting over who should have custody of their dog. One of the woman bought the dog for her girlfriend before they got married in New York, and now the couple is divorcing and both want to keep the dog.
For many states, pets are not treated the same as children in divorce cases, and generally one person would agree to let the other person have the pet. or divide up pets if they have multiple. In Wisconsin, a person might be wise to speak with their divorce attorney if they are set on keeping their dog through a divorce.
