Divorce

Experienced Anchorage Divorce Attorneys

Divorce is a multi-faceted process with legal, financial, emotional and often religious aspects. At the Law Offices of Dan Allan & Associates, we address all facets of divorce so that you emerge from this complex and difficult period ready to move on with your life. We aim for creative and amicable solutions, especially for clients who will continue a relationship as co-parents, but our accomplished trial lawyers are formidable in contested proceedings.

Our objective is simple — seeing that our clients get what they are entitled to without giving up more than they have to. Our experienced divorce attorneys have a solid understanding of the law, compassion for our clients and the legal savvy to advocate for their interests. We represent men or women in the Anchorage area and throughout Alaska in all divorce-related matters:

We have experience in the special issues of military divorces, and also handle the dissolution of domestic partnerships and "common law" marriages.

Our lawyers have practiced in divorce and family law in Alaska since 1981, and have over 80 years of combined experience. They have handled both contested and uncontested divorces, from couples with multi-million-dollar estates to those with massive debts. They have sorted out the tangles of union pensions, hidden assets, and other complex scenarios, as well as post-divorce modifications of custody, child support, and alimony.

No-Fault and Full Disclosure in Your Divorce

Alaska is a no-fault divorce state, which means that the reasons for your divorce are inconsequential. With a no-fault status comes an equitable division of all the assets. Oftentimes, an equitable division is an equal division, but not always.

Alaska is also a full disclosure state, meaning that everything must be put on the table in the property division. If money or possessions are discovered after the fact, a judge may impose severe penalties on the offending spouse.

Attentive to Your Needs

Dan Allan & Associates strives to work efficiently, and we pay attention to your particular goals and concerns. If you were caught off guard when your spouse filed for divorce, we can steer you to resources to help you deal with the emotional fallout while we work to play "catch-up" in the determination of temporary custody and financial support. We address the challenges of maintaining two separate households, achieving financial independence and shielding children as much as possible from the trauma.
