Timothy Denison's answer Do you have somewhere safe you can keep the dog that is not at your house? If so, you should move him there for safekeeping and so no one can take him from you until the ownership is established. I sincerely doubt that they will get a warrant, but if they do, the dog won’t be there. Don’t give them any information snd don’t talk to them about anything. Call Martha at my office and schedule an appointment on Monday.
Timothy Denison's answer Depends on whether your lease allows you to have animals at all. If it doesn’t, he can evict you. If it does, then you have to get to the terms under which you can have him and whether they can prove any attack occurred.
Timothy Denison's answer Yes. You have recourse. Get all your payments together and present them to the children. If they don’t reimburse you or give you the dogs, you may have to file suit for your money.
Timothy Denison's answer Obviously, if you could get the dog back, problem solved. If you cannot get the dog back, there’s really nothing she can do to you. She had the opportunity to get him back when you told her and couldn’t so her window has closed.
