Who gets the pet in a New Jersey divorce proceeding? Can I have visitation rights to my pet? Many people embrace their pets like family members. It is not unusual for issues about pets to become contentious in divorce proceedings. Some people hope to have visitation rights or joint custody of their pets. However, according to the New Jersey courts pets are treated like property subject to equitable distribution. Pets are not subject to custody rules and laws. Therefore, the party who does not get to keep the pet does not have a right to visitation or shared time.
