- Breach of contract is for situations where the you and the other party shared custody for a period of time based on a verbal or written agreement (text message counts!) and then the other person stopped sharing custody for any reason or no reason. OR, this can be used in situations where the other party promised to watch the pet for a period of time and then refused to return the pet when you asked for him/her back.
- Conversion is an old school legal word for: give me money for taking my pet from me. It’s kind of like civil theft, but how they got possession of your pet doesn’t matter so much as they took possession and you have a right to have your pet. You can get money for the time the other person had possession of your pet.
- Intentional infliction of emotional distress is the way you ask the court for money for the emotional distress the other person put on you by taking your pet from you.
