Andrew D. Taylor Publishes Article in Legal Intelligencer Regarding Pet Custody

Andrew D. Taylor discusses custody of family pets in the divorce process.

BLUE BELL, Pa. (July 2019) – Montgomery County family law firm Shemtob Draganosky Taylor Stein, PC is pleased to announce that an article authored by partner Andrew D. Taylor has been published in the Legal Intelligencer.  The article titled “Could Pet Custody Court be Coming to a Family Court Near You?” explains that in Pennsylvania divorces, pets are treated as personal property: one spouse gets the pet, the other does not.  However, that may soon change as a PA House Bill has been introduced that, if passed into law, would require a judge in family court to award custody of the family pet.  To read the complete article, click here.

Taylor concentrates his practice on divorce, which includes handling matters of equitable distribution, alimony, custody, child and spousal support, prenuptial agreements, property settlement agreements and other family law matters. Taylor regularly argues appeals before the Pennsylvania Superior Court and has argued complex family law issues before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
