Are shared child custody arrangements the best?

Divorce and child custody cases can be emotional events for parents and their children. Divorce can often cause parents to be bitter toward each other, which leads many Alaska parents to battle with each other in regard to child custody arrangements. Many parents are under the assumption that they are the better parent with whom the children should live. Recent research indicates that children thrive more when they are able to spend time with both parents.

Fortunately, Alaska residents may be able to collect spousal support from retirement benefits.
