Who Gets the Dog in the Divorce?

Some people are very attached to their pets and want to make sure that they get "custody" of their pet in the divorce. 

With the start of 2018 many laws went into effect that impact divorcing couples in different states. In Illinois they just passed a law where pets are going to be treated more like kids than property when "parents" split. There, pets could be subject to partial or joint custody after their owners divorce.

In Texas the law still treats pets like property during a divorce.
