Division of community property: pet animals.


Existing law generally requires a court in a judgment of dissolution of marriage or judgment of legal separation of the parties to make a property division that equally divides the community estate of the parties, except as otherwise specified. Existing law authorizes a court, upon request of a party to proceedings for dissolution of marriage or for legal separation of the parties and notwithstanding other requirements for dividing the community estate of the parties, to assign sole or joint ownership of a community property pet animal taking into consideration the care of the pet animal. This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
