Would you believe that, starting January 1st, the State of Illinois joined other states which allow
divorcing parties to be granted "custody" of their pets?! Presumably, just like with child custody,
each party to a divorce will, in those states, try to convince the judge that he or she would make
the better custodial "parent!"
We at the Goolsby Law Firm have not yet experienced such an issue in our Augusta, Georgia divorces!
Would you try to win sole possession of your pet?!
