New California law allows pet owners to seek custody in a divorce

California passed a new law that treats pets as part of the family, rather than a piece of property. According to The San Diego Union-Tribune, owners can seek sole or joint ownership of their pets in court. The decision will be based on who can best care for the pet.

Care includes protecting your pet from harm and providing food, shelter and veterinary care. The law also stipulates that one spouse can seek an order to care for the pet until the divorce is finalized.

Can you Succeed in Divorce

We spend a lot of time talking about how to "get through" a divorce, but what about coming out on top? Is it possible to "succeed" at divorce? The editors at HuffPost think so, and we agree. With the help of an experienced family divorce attorney, you can "win" divorce.
