In addition to representing my clients in their Colorado family law matters, I also have a passion for animal rights law.

The family pet is considered property under Colorado law, and one would assume that they would be disclosed in a dissolution case, but their existence is not acknowledged by the Colorado Courts. This issue can cause problems for parties in a divorce action and create the potential for post-decree litigation.

A Colorado family law attorney can inform the client of their right to address Colorado "Pet Custody" in the Separation Agreement and address visitation schedules and allocation of financial responsibility, but the solution to this issue ultimately lies with the Colorado legislature to set a procedure for how pet custody should be determined in dissolution cases.

If you have questions about pet custody in the State of Colorado, call The Harris Law Firm to schedule a consultation with Kate Brewer, Esq.
