Alaska allows you to complete your divorce without an attorney if you and your spouse can come to an agreement on what to do with your property and how you will care for any children that you have.
Alaska Residency Requirements
At least one spouse must currently reside in Alaska, who is physically present in Alaska and intends to remain a resident of Alaska. No minimum days of residency is required.
Grounds For Divorce
Alaska is a no-fault divorce state. In an Alaska no-fault divorce the spouses agree that “incompatibility of temperament has caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage.”
Filing Your Alaska Divorce
After completing the online interview, DivorceWriter sends you the divorce forms you prepared online along with detailed Alaska filing procedures. The basic steps for filing your divorce are as follows:
- You review and sign the documents, then file the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage and other divorce documents with the court clerk.
- You then wait 30 days from when the Petition was filed before attending a final hearing.
- A judge completes your divorce by signing your Decree of Divorce.
Division of property & debt, child parenting plan (including child support, visitation and custody), spousal support, and more are covered.
DivorceWriter provides forms specific to the state of Alaska and offers a money back guarantee if your documents are not accepted by the Court.
If you select an Alaska divorce without children, you are selecting the following forms:
