Q. I am getting a divorce and we cannot agree on who gets the pets.

The dogs and cats are like children to me. How do I get custody of the pets?


On October 25, 2021, Gov Hochul signed L 2021, ch 509 that amends DRL 236. The purpose of this legislation is to ensure that the best interests of pets are taken into consideration during divorce or separation proceedings.
