I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
First, let me express my condolences on the loss of your wife.
As to the point of your question, in either state, you need to have the dog designated by a physician as a medical assist animal (similar to a seeing eye dog). You need to have your physician make this designation and you need to keep a copy of the letter of designation on you any time you go to a restaurant and bring the dog with you.
Let me know if you have any other questions or comments.
Please rate my answer positively (5 stars) so that I can receive credit for my work.
Best wishes!

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
