PERSONAL PROPERTY DISPUTE SETTLED
We represented a client who purchased a pet dog while living with their significant other. Our client was the primary caregiver of the pet dog during their relationship and after the relationship ended. Several months later, our client's significant other retained an attorney and claimed ownership of the pet dog. After we reviewed the pertinent legal documents, we discovered that both parties were named as the Buyers on the Bill of Sale Agreement, and both parties contributed monetarily to the purchase of the pet dog. As a result, they were both legally entitled to the pet dog. We were able to negotiate a buyout, which gave our client 100% ownership of the pet dog, and the opposing party a temporary visitation schedule.
