Anchorage, Alaska Divorce and Family Law Attorneys
Amid the hurt feelings, heated disputes and sudden changes in your life, it's difficult to look past the situation that's right in front of you. During your divorce and custody proceedings, we'll make sure you fully understand the legal and financial ramifications and we'll make sure we stay attuned to the best interests of you and your children in both the immediate aftermath as well as in the long run. There aren't too many situations we aren't familiar with. Our attorneys have handled nearly every type of scenario from simple, amicable divorces to complex disputes over asset division, child custody, and financial support. We represent both men and women throughout the Anchorage area and all over the state of Alaska. If you're in the military and are stationed in Alaska, we can help you, too.
Types of Family Law Cases We Handle
While divorce is a primary area, it’s not the only type of case we handle. No matter what your family's circumstance may be, we have the experience and dedication needed to help see you through. Some of the types of family law cases we handle include:
Our goal is efficient and cost-effective resolutions that avoid litigation, but we are prepared to assert your position in court regarding property, children or finances.
Our lawyers have represented personnel of Fort Richardson and Elmendorf Air Force Base. We are familiar with the special challenges relating to military pay, benefits, and deployment.
If you are living apart but do not wish to divorce for legal, financial, religious or social reasons, we can protect your interests in this process.
Domestic Partnership Dissolution
Because common law and same-sex marriages are not recognized in Alaska, you will need representation to assert your rights in property division and custody matters.
Marital Property Division
Alaska is an equitable distribution state, but valuing assets and deciding how to split them can be a very complicated task. We determine what's joint property and offer creative ways to divvy it up.
Financial support may be ordered by a court if there is a big disparity in earning power, or "alimony" can be negotiated as part of the property settlement.
Child Custody and Visitation
We begin with the best interests of the child and focus on solutions that address our clients' concerns while fostering ongoing cooperation between parents. We also handle custody modifications when a child is at risk or the parenting schedule needs to be altered.
There is a formula, but many factors can result in higher or lower levels of support. We represent either parent in determination, modification, and enforcement of support obligations.
