DivorceSome of those living in Alaska are transplants and may not be familiar with our laws. We would be happy to discuss your legal matters with you and answer any questions. In summary, the divorce and family law process works as shown below.
Child SupportChild support - In Alaska, there is a specific guideline (Civil Rule 90.3. Child Support Awards), which is non-negotiable. We can help you understand the guideline.
Child Custody and VisitationChild custody - The court favors 50/50 custody arrangements and does not favor removing a child from either parent. Out-of-state parental rights is an issue with which we are familiar. Our family law attorneys are completely familiar with all of the issues common during child custody determinations or custody disputes.
AdoptionClients rely on our depth of legal knowledge and our ability to answer challenging questions about the obstacles they might face.

Through our history, we have handled these matters with efficiency and professionalism. Count on us to get you through this process so you can begin your new life.
Spousal SupportSpousal support or alimony - In general, the court prefers that all financial matters are settled during the division of assets. Spousal support may be awarded for reorientation to the workforce or rehabilitation and, in some cases, may be awarded on a permanent basis.
