Online divorces may be appropriate for couples who have an uncontested case. The step-by-step process of preparing divorce documents at OnlineDivorce.com makes it easy on the client. The site helps prepare all the necessary divorce forms and provides detailed written instructions on how to file for divorce in Alaska.
Our divorce document preparation service can assist those who want their divorce papers completed in a quick and stress-free fashion. Alaska has unique divorce forms and filing requirements, and our online system provides exactly what is necessary and applicable, with instructions on how to file. We have helped thousands of people prepare their divorce documents for filing.
If the two spouses have an amicable agreement on the terms of the divorce, why should the process get drawn out, and why should money be spent on lawyers? Online divorces are often cheaper, quicker and easier.
Online divorce is often a great option for those who want to save money or hope to have the divorce quickly finalized and return to normal life. An increasing number of people are preparing documents for divorce online because it can be done in the comfort of one’s own home. Even for complex cases that involve children, property or other assets, the online route is possible. Clients first fill out a simple questionnaire and are given instructions at each step of the way.
The process at OnlineDivorce.com is 100% secure. We protect the client’s information and nothing gets filed until the client personally submits the divorce papers to a court. Filing for divorce in Alaska with OnlineDivorce can be a simple solution to a difficult situation.
OnlineDivorce.com begins the divorce process by presenting a simple online questionnaire. It can be filled out alone or with the assistance of a spouse. A signature from the other spouse must be obtained, after which the divorce forms may be filed at local court. In Alaska, this is typically done at the courthouse in the county where the client currently resides. If the petitioner is not currently a resident, but the defendant is, divorce is typically filed in the county where the defendant resides.
The actual filing process is explained in our detailed court-filing instructions that we provide along with the completed divorce forms. Clients can also obtain assistance from their local courthouse by calling or stopping by.
If there are any issues with the documents after the initial filing, clients may need to follow up. OnlineDivorce.com helps the client make small adjustments to their forms, as requested by the court, at no additional charge. The goal of the service is always to minimize stress and hassle.
Every state has specific requirements where divorcing couples must establish residency within the state they are divorcing. Alaska is no exception.
The spouse who files for a divorce and/or dissolution of marriage must be a resident of the state. No residency time limit is specified. [Alaska Statutes; Sections 22.10.030, 25.24.080, and 25.24.090].
There are many ways to prove that residency has been established. The easiest way is if one or both spouses have a valid and in-date Alaska driver’s license, ID card or voter’s registration card which was issued at least six months before filing for divorce. If this is not the case, it may be possible to establish residency, by having someone who knows you or your spouse testify that you have lived in the state for at least six months. Additionally, it may be possible to use an Affidavit of Corroborating Witness form, and it should serve as proof you’ve lived in the state a minimum of six months.

Valid grounds to get divorce in Alaska
Grounds for an online divorce using OnlineDivorce.com are the same as they would be for any divorce within the State of Alaska. Grounds are merely the reason for divorce, and the state must approve them.
There are two primary categories of divorce filing in Alaska. They are fault and no-fault.
No-fault divorce is a dissolution of marriage in which the divorce will take place without any wrongdoing from either party. In Alaska, that means:
Incompatibility of the spouses which will cause the irreconcilable breakdown of the marriage. [Alaska Statutes; Section 25.24.200].
The general or fault-based reasons for divorce include, but are not limited to:
Incurable mental illness and confinement for a minimum of 18 months;
Drug or heavy alcohol abuse;
Failure to consummate the marriage;
Conviction of a felony;
Willful desertion or abandonment of over one year;
Cruel and/or inhuman treatment;
Personal indignities against the spouse[Alaska Statutes; Section 25.24.050].

My ex agreed to go this way as well so it was a much less expensive option for us.
Tamara B., Nevada
Because of the whole dissolution of the marriage, I was struggling with two children and
just in limbo with my husband at the time because of child support and alimony. I was a
stay-at-home mom for 10 years. I just want to say that this site helped me sort it out.
Theresa S., New York
I live in upstate NY and unfortunately one day I found myself in a situation for divorce.

Custody of the child in Alaska
In Alaska divorce cases, the court can choose to award either joint or sole custody to either parent or both parents. The state of Alaska defines the term joint legal custody not as who has the child in his or her possession but instead as as a form of “shared parental responsibility,” and joint custody is recognized and supported as preferable to sole custody when it is in the best interest of the child or children. Joint custody does not mean that both parents spend an equal time with the child or children. Parents are given fair and equal consideration when determining custody and no preference is given to one parent versus the other based on gender.
The state court in Alaska grants the custody of the children upon the official dissolution of marriage. The child custody will be granted to either of the parents on the following grounds.
The capability and desire of each of the parent sto meet the child’s needs;
The physical, mental, emotional, religious, and other requirements of the child;
The preference of the children or child (if of sufficient age and maturity);
The love and affection that exists between the children and each of the parents;
The amount of time the child has lived in a stable environment and the desire to maintain continuity;
The desire and ability of each parent to allow an open and loving relationship between the child and the other parent;
Any evidence of spousal violence, child abuse, neglect, or other abuse; and
Any evidence of substance abuse that would affect the emotional or physical well-being of the child.
Neither parent is considered to be entitled to custody without meeting grounds. [Alaska Statutes; Section 25.24.150].
The court may award joint custody if and only if it finds that to be in the best interest of the child. When determining that it would be the case, the state considers the following:
The child’s requirements and education;
Any exceptional needs of the child that may be better met by one or both parent;s
Any findings obtained by a neutral mediator;
The optimal time that a child would be with each parent;
The geographic proximity of the parents as it may relate to where the child will reside and where the child would attend school;
The advantage of keeping the child in the same community where he or she lives;
If shared custody would promote better contact between the child and the parents;
The length of time the child has lived in a stable environment and the desire of maintaining that continuity;
The fitness a of each of the parents (including any evidence of abuse);
Any history of violence in the household;
The requests of the child (if the child is of sufficient maturity);
The stability of each of the homes; and
Other relevant factors. [Alaska Statutes; Section 25.20.090].
Rules for child support in Alaska
Alaska has put into place specific state-mandated child support guidelines which apply in almost every case, barring special circumstances. With this, both parties’ gross incomes and certain child related expenses are considered when calculating the child support obligation. In the great majority of cases, child support payments continue until the child reaches eighteen years of age, and can extend until the completion of the child or children’s secondary education.
Either or both parents may be required to provide child support. Child support payments may be ordered paid to a court-appointed trustee or through the state child support enforcement agency. There are official Child Support Guidelines contained in Alaska Rules of Civil Procedure; Rule 90.3. These state guidelines are presumed to be correct unless there is a showing that the amount would be manifestly unjust under the particular circumstances in a case.
Factors for deviation from the guidelines are:
An especially large family size;
Any significant income of the child;
Health or other extraordinary expenses;
Unusually low expenses of the family;
The parent who has the child support obligation also has an income below Federal poverty level; and
Any other unusual circumstances.
For parents with income over $72,000, the above six factors will not apply. In those instances, the factors are different. These factors are:
That an increased award would be just and proper;
The overall needs of the children;
The standard of living enjoyed by the children; and
The extent in which the standard of living of the children should be reflective of the parent’s ability to pay.
As a note, medical insurance for the child and life insurance that covers the life of the parent who pays support may be a requirement of the court and payments for child support can sometimes be required to be funded through a protected state bank.

Rules for spousal support in Alaska
Alimony, also known as spousal support, is sometimes ordered by the court to help one spouse live in a manner established during marriage after the divorce. Support may be decided upon by the couple together prior to filing or may be awarded by the court in a contested case. The court may award rehabilitative (short-term) or a more permanent alimony to either of the spouses in either lump-sum payments or as monthly/yearly payments or both. Adultery can sometimes be a factor in awarding support. This means that if one spouse was thought to “cause” the divorce through an extra-marital affair, he or she might be less likely to be awarded alimony or it can change the amount that would be granted by the court. Please note that alimony payments can be ordered to be paid through a state depository in some cases.
Property division in Alaska
When a couple chooses to divorce in Alaska, they must distribute property in a fair and agreeable manner.
Alaska is an “equitable distribution” state. Joint and separate property acquired during the marriage is divided in a “fair” manner. Any fault of the spouses is not be taken into account. If necessary, to achieve a fair result in a “fault-based” divorce action, property acquired before the marriage can be divided also. In a “no-fault” dissolution of marriage, property obtained before the marriage is not be divided unless it is in the best interests of any children of the marriage to do so. Gifts and inheritances no matter the source are subject to division by the court.
Factors considered are:
Duration of marriage;
Position in life (age) of the parties during the marriage;
The current age and wellness of the parties;
The current and future earning capacity of each spouse;
The overall financial condition of each spouse;
The parties’ behavior regarding their assets;
The desire to award the family home to the spouse who has primary physical custody of children;
The time and manner in which property was acquired;
The income-producing capacity of any property and said value; and
Any other relevant factors.
Non-monetary contributions to the marriage (for example: homemaking and childcare) are also considered when dividing property. If property would be considered “community property” under such a community property agreement or trust under Alaska Statutes, Section 34.77, the court will divide such property in a fair and equitable manner based on all factors, including:
The nature and extent of the community property;
The nature and extent of the spouse’s separate property; and
Offline and inconvenient process with attorney representation for each spouse. Costly attorney
fees resulting in unforeseen expenditures. Lengthy and expensive option.
Attorney availability impacts completion time
Each spouse has to hire an attorney, which automatically doubles legal costs
Potential court battles add to the already high-stress levels

Mediation support in Alaska
Either of the spouses can request mediation in an attempt to reach a settlement with no contest. If no request is made, the judge can order the spouses to submit to mediation if it is felt that a more satisfactory settlement with less disagreements may be achieved. In these cases, the court will appoint a mediator. [Alaska Statutes; Section 25.24.060].

Filing fees for divorce in Alaska
When an individual files divorce papers, the court will charge filing fees that may vary by county. These costs are in addition to the cost of using OnlineDivorce.com. Clients must check with their local courthouse to determine the exact amount.
How long will it take?
Use of the OnlineDivorce.com service usually takes between 30 minutes and two hours or more depending on the complexity of the case. Clients start by filling out a questionnaire and can either complete it in one sitting or save their progress and complete it at a later date.
Once the documents have been completed, they need to be filed with the other spouse’s signature. More information regarding the finalization of the divorce case is provided once the paperwork has been completed and submitted to a court.
Here is how OnlineDivorce.com makes completing divorce papers easier:
We provide the full divorce packet required by the local court - clients do not need to drive to their local courthouse to get the blank forms or search for the right divorce forms online. In rare cases, local county forms can vary in color, paper material, size, or bar code, so they may need to be obtained directly from the county clerk's office.
We complete the necessary forms for clients based on their answers given in a simple guided online interview - clients do not need to understand family law or read through complicated instructions to figure out how to fill out the forms themselves.
We give detailed, easy to follow step-by-step instructions for filing a divorce with the court - so the client knows exactly what to do to get his/her divorce finalized.
We provide unlimited technical support - if a client needs assistance through the online process, he/she can always reach out to us via phone, email, or live chat, and we'll do our best to help.
We save our clients time and money - if divorcing spouses agree regarding the terms of their divorce, they typically don’t have to pay thousands to a lawyer to handle their divorce forms and don't need to spend hours trying to do it all by themselves.
We guarantee 100% court approval on divorce papers prepared through our website or your money back - we have 21 years of experience in completing divorce forms so clients can be sure the court will accept their documents without issues.
All the documents were completed correctly and timely. I had no problems filling them with the local court. Best of all, it saved me a ton of money since I didn’t have to hire a lawyer for the paperwork.
With a contested divorce, spouses will have to go through numerous steps before the divorce is finalized, including:
prepare, file, and serve (deliver) the divorce petition
respond to the petition
interview and hire an attorney
pre-trial legal motions and hearings
settlement proposals and negotiations between attorneys
if settlement fails, prepare for and complete a court trial
appeal, if you dispute the trial judge’s decision(s)
Prepare to pay exorbitant attorney's fees - at least $2000-3000 depending on your case’s complexity.
Hourly rates vary with different attorneys and average $250-300 per hour. In rural areas, attorneys
may charge less. However, if you live in a large city, local attorneys may charge up to $1000 per hour.
At first glance, using such sites may look like an easy way to go, but it may turn into additional
headaches for you. Some of the issues you may experience when dealing with basic online divorce
long processing times - do you like waiting?
inexperienced and poorly-trained customer support
not user-friendly technology
lack of guidance during the process
hidden fees, e.g., for any, even the simplest, revisions
outdated divorce forms causing court rejection
Did you know that some online divorce providers have virtual addresses in the US because they are
based in other countries? No wonder some clients are provided with outdated divorce forms that will
be rejected by the court. The result? Those people lose their time and money because these
unprofessional services do not keep their state forms up-to-date.
Beware of fake reviews: with no experience and lack of quality service, some sites post reviews by non-existent "customers".
