A dispute over who gets the dog after a breakup, estrangement, or adoption mishap is an all-too-common path that can lead to litigation. Where the animal is treated as “property” in our legal system, replevin actions can be used to resolve the issues of ownership and possession. Animal law attorneys, family law practitioners, and civil practice lawyers won’t want to miss this in-depth look at the avenues for relief when such disputes arise, how to advise your client who is facing an animal replevin case, and the procedures involved with these types of cases. The live webcast will be held from noon until 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 30. Topics include: an introductory overview of replevin cases in animal law; typical replevin cases and treatment by the courts; replevin statutes and relevant caselaw; procedures and client preparation, including initial hearing, bond requirement, and the necessary documents; and mediation, settlement, shared custody, and other alternatives.
