Uncontested divorce in Alaska

Having decided to end their marriage, the couples in the state of Alaska have two options:

  • The first option is to have a contested divorce if the couple has unresolvable disputes concerning any dissolution-related aspects. Since divorcing spouses must protect their own interests during a hearing for the judge to rule in their favor, they have no choice but to hire an attorney who will represent them in court and ensure the positive outcome of the marriage dissolution proceedings. Therefore, the cost of divorce becomes sky-high with the constantly increasing attorney fees as months go by.
  • The second option is to file for an uncontested divorce. Ending a marriage in such a way becomes possible only when the separating spouses have already handled all the problematic aspects of their dissolution and just want a judge to approve their agreement. This option is known to be very beneficial for couples as it does not necessarily require them to hire lawyers. They just need to fill out the necessary documentation correctly and cover the court fees in order to end their marriage officially.

However, even if you have chosen the uncontested dissolution, you will still have to find out all the needed documentation for your case and fill it out properly. If you decided to look for the forms by yourself on the Web, mind that there is a slight chance that you’ll find proper up-to-date documents that will be later accepted by the court. Fortunately, you can avoid such a problem with the help of OnlineDivorcer.

Filing

A Petitioner (the spouse who is initiating a divorce) must file a petition in Superior Court of the judicial district where either spouse resides. Then, a Petitioner has to serve the husband or wife (who is a Respondent) either by certified mail, return receipt, and restricted delivery or with the help of a process server. The spouse then has 20 days to respond to the petition. If there is no response during this period, then a Petitioner files for a default divorce.

Getting a divorce in Alaska with a child

Filling for uncontested divorce, couples with children have to solve all the issues concerning parenting plan, custody, and support for a dissolution to be finalized.

  • Deciding on a parenting plan, spouses have to make visitation schedule, plan how to divide custody, and think about living arrangements.
  • Spouses will have to calculate the child support payments to be made to one of the parents based on the percentage of time kids will spend with each one, annual income, and a few other factors.
  • According to AK state laws, if the parents cannot reach an agreement concerning child’s custody, then the judge will make a decision based on child’s best interests. Such factors as child’s physical, emotional, and mental needs, the financial status of both parents, the relationship of the child with mother and father, and any evidence of domestic violence or abuse, will also be taken into account.
  • In the state of Alaska, a parent who is moving out of state during the divorce process can still receive full physical custody if it serves child’s best interests.
