How do you divide the animals in divorce?

Dividing personal property is often difficult in a divorce. Dividing animals is painful! The reason it is painful is because our pets become family members. While they may be family members to us, the Court does not look at them that way. They are personal property that is either divided by the parties or they may be ordered sold and the proceeds divided by the parties. The moral of the story is . . . work it out.
