Introduction

Britain is known for being a nation of animal lovers but what happens when a relationship ends?

Statistics show that almost 50% of the population in the UK own a pet and it has been reported that one in four divorces involve a dispute over a pet, and the figure is likely to be similar in relation to co-habiting couples.

As a result, the Law Society have previously suggested that entering into a pet-nup might be beneficial.

This introductory level webinar is suitable for those who deal with divorce and separation.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • How much of an issue pets are when it comes to divorce proceedings - recent examples where pets have been involved in divorce proceedings and how often this happens
  • The legal definition of a pet
  • Factors the court might take into account when deciding who a pet should stay with/what is the current legal position?
  • Practical ways of dealing with 'who gets the dog'
  • Things to include in a pet-nup
  • Is the law going to change to give more recognition to the position animals have?
