So basically leave it like it is. If she pushes and now all of a sudden wants the dog make her take it to court. Prove how she hasnt spent any money on dog (vet bills, food, etc) during time of marriage and especially during our separation. She hasnt even visited the dog since December and the divorce became final June 3. It was today that she asked to see him and threatened to take it to court if I didnt. Just seems odd to all of a sudden care for the dog.
If I wanted to get the ownership changed over in court what steps would I need to procede.
Ok just wondered, last thing. We probably made a mistake and did a no fault divorce and no property was split in the decree. The only thing in the decree is that she had to pay an amount for half the credit card bills thats it. With it not being in the decree didnt know if she was giving up ownership of dog.
