Here's another celebrity couple in the news where the divorce has sparked a debate over who will get the dogs. Pet custody can be a big issue in a divorce - especially true because most courts are equipped to handle pet custody issues in the same way they handle "time sharing" for the kids.
Pet custody disputes are best settled in mediation where the couple can craft their own solution and not end up with one imposed arbitrarily by the court. Don't let a non-family member decide the fate for your pets. Take pet custody issues into your own hands and get an experienced mediator, preferably a pet .lover who can help work through these sensitive issues.
