I gave a dog away to a man and we verbally agreed that I would have 6 months to decide before I signed her over completely to the new owner. It took me one day to change my mind that I couldn't give her up. I have all the ownership papers stating that she is mine. What is the law regarding who should get possession while awaiting trial and to disregard such agreement? Thanks
Check with a local attorney. There are often procedures (at least in NY) to get cases heard more expeditiously and motions can be made in court to try to change possession. However, since disputing parties typically have different versions of their verbal agreement (a reason why agreements should be in writing), courts are not likely to order changes in possession until the court hears the evidence in the case.
