Alaska Divorce Laws | Children Custody


A court in Alaska grants the custody of the children upon divorce. The child custody can be granted to either parent on the following grounds. Either or both parents may be ordered 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 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. In the cases of minors the Alaska courts will do everything possible to assist in the lessening of emotional trauma the children may be experiencing in going through the divorce process. If the parents cannot come to an agreement regarding the issues involving the children, the court will establish the custody order at its discretion.
