Gibson Kerr’s advice on dealing with legal rules surrounding pets – if couples should ever seperate – has made a pet industry news website.
The Edinburgh-based family-run law firm advised seperating couples to seek proper legal advice to avoid a possible drawn out battle over the custody of family pets.
On the UK Pet website – which is the largest UK directory of pet product news, pet supplies, pet shops and pet services – viewers can read news and articles on pet issues.
Under the heading “Legal Rules for Custody of Pets” the article details Gibson Kerr’s advice that pets are treated the same as other mutually-owned property such as cars, money or property in the eyes of the law.
They explain: “Over here, pets are treated no differently to any other assets that a couple may have gathered during their marriage – such as their property or any mutual savings – and therefore they are split equally between the two partners.”
