Who gets custody of our pet?

Despite the fact that they are often valued parts of our families, in Minnesota, pets are legally considered property, and who gets "custody" of that pet is part of the property division in a divorce. In deciding the matter, the court can consider various factors such as whether the animal was a gift, who pays the vet bills, and who takes care of it.
