Are you saying you purchased the dog for your husband's birthday?
Are you saying that you purchased the dog for both of you in honourvof your husband's birthday?
In other words is this it was a gift for your husband?
The problem is that dogs and other animals are not treated as children by the courts. They are considered as objects sadly.
So your dog is considered the same as any other item you may have bought.And in this case it sounds like you bought the dog as a gift for your spouse and so it seems that unfortunately the court will likely say that you gave him the dog and so it is his.
If you could prove there was an agreement that you would each share in the dog that would help and perhaps the court would agree to make an order that the dog be shared. But that would be similar to making an order that a painting be shared, just for example.
I wish I had a more optimistic answer for you.
I am sorry to hear that.Did you see my answer?
It may be best to have a lawyer deal with this. This may scare him because he has no money.
The court will not care about your income because as I've said, this is not about a child. It is about an object as far as the Judge thinks.
