Know Your Rights and Your Alternatives in Alaska Family Law
Contact Dorothea G. Aguero, Attorney at Law
Before you file for divorce or respond to a divorce complaint, you need to understand your legal rights with respect to the division of marital property, pensions and investments, spousal support, child custody and visitation, and child support. It is also essential to understand your alternatives in the divorce process itself-whether to negotiate a marital settlement agreement or go to trial, and what strategy to use in either case.
If you are planning to negotiate a settlement, it is crucial to understand what is allowed in divorce settlements under Alaska family law so your interests are protected and your agreement will be approved by the court. Whether in negotiation or litigation, I will make sure you understand the law and what options are available. I will work with you to make sure the process and tactics protect your interests and support your values.
Marital Property Division in Alaska
In Alaska, there is no easy formula for dividing marital assets and debts upon divorce. Each aspect of your marital property must be considered in combination with the others. Pensions, the value of a business, insurance, investments and even debt must be considered in concert in order to protect your financial interests in the short- and long-term and ensure your marital property is divided equitably. With 16 years of experience handling divorce in south central Alaska, I have experience in the division of complex property and larger estates, including the division of pension plans and benefits, issues surrounding business valuation, and other assets:
- Military pensions
- 401(k) plans
- Stock plans
- Insurance, including health insurance benefits
Understand your rights and alternatives as you go through the divorce process, and take action today to facilitate a divorce that protects the future of your family. My Anchorage offices are open weekdays from 8:30 to 5:00. Contact me today to schedule a consultation.
