Q: Should I have separate insurance policies for my rental LLC’s, or can it be a named insured on my personal policy?
Leonard R. Boyer
Leonard R. Boyer answered on Dec 5, 2019

Each LLC should have at least three members and it's own insurance policy. All LLCs should be owned by a "C" corp. Anything else is not going to protect you from personal liability. You really need to retain an experienced business and contracts attorney.

Do you seriously believe a Court will want to get involved in this matter? I can understand that a dog is almost like a child, but a Judge may not be so tolerant. Perhaps you could give you ex a different dog to try to work this out?
