Coping with division of marital assets in high-conflict divorce

Many couples nationwide, including in Alaska, choose to divorce amicably through mediation or the collaborative divorce process. However, these methods are not always viable options, especially in high-conflict divorces. Unfortunately, a high-conflict divorce can be incredibly challenging and often brings out the worst in people. The battles over the division of marital assets, child custody and other contentious matters can create a negative attitude that may be detrimental to the ultimate outcome.

Division of marital assets: For Ben and Jennifer, kids come first

Divorcing in a manner that will allow spouses and their children to maintain relationships post-divorce is becoming more and more common nationwide, including in Alaska. Some couples are realizing that not all divorces need to include unpleasant and costly litigation. There are even some celebrities who have chosen to end their marriages amicably, despite the fact that they typically have complicated issues related to the division of marital assets. The latest celebrity couple who is planning to split with the least amount of trauma is Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.

However, there are no clear legal parameters related to IVF, in which embryos are frozen for future use. This has been a matter of contention in several child custody disputes.
