Pets need extra attention and activities during Texas divorce

Pets are increasingly recognized as having a special position in a family relationship. They are unable to care for themselves so that they are cared for as part of this special relationship. In return, pets share their love and their faithful innocence with the family. In Texas and throughout the country, we even see instances of pets stepping up to assist humans in times of peril. Thus, domesticated animals are generally considered a part of the family unit deserving of a degree of respect and consideration in any situation such as a Texas divorce where drastic change is imminent.

Texas seniors can face unique divorce issues

Of course, a decision favoring one or the other party may depend strongly on evidence of the alleged indiscretion, as is the case here.
