You can pay other online divorce services up to $299 to receive the same completed divorce papers that you would receive from ReliableDivorce.com for just $99. Plus, our $99 price includes the option to schedule a phone conference with the legal professional assigned to your case (your Case Manager) to walk you through each step of the process and answer any questions you may have.
Because you want accurate, up to date divorce papers with a proven track record of acceptance by the court.

Because you want a single, upfront price and not be hit with hidden fees later down the road.
Many other services start hitting you up for additional fees shortly after you sign up (and after already paying their initial fee). These additional fees often include "storage fees" to maintain your information or monthly charges just so you may continue to access your own documents. However, we will never ask you to pay any additional fees. With ReliableDivorce.com, you will always have unlimited access to your account so that, at any time, you may make changes to your information and generate new documents regardless of how long ago you signed up for our service.
Getting an Online Divorce in Alaska
Our online divorce service is designed for spouses who want a simple, cheap and fast divorce in Alaska. In Alaska, there are different procedures for divorce versus dissolution of marriage. An uncontested divorce in which the spouses agree to all the terms of the divorce is called a "dissolution" under Alaska law. [Alaska Stat § 25.24.200]. Since the key factor to determine whether our online divorce service will work for your situation is that both spouses can agree to all the terms of the divorce, we only provide papers for dissolution in Alaska. If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement on all the issues, then you will have to follow the more extensive procedures for a divorce under Alaska law.
ReliableDivorce.com makes the online divorce (or dissolution) process easy and affordable for virtually every budget. Based on your answers to our questionnaire, we determine all the necessary documents you will need and the documents are prepared as required for the court’s approval. We provide you step-by-step written instructions beginning with how to file your dissolution papers and all the way through how to finalize your dissolution or divorce.
We have spent more than 15 years helping people file for and complete their divorce or dissolution. Unlike many other online divorce services, our services don’t end once you file your initial divorce papers. We also want to make sure you are easily able to finalize your divorce as quickly as Alaska law allows. We understand that even with step-by-step instructions to guide you through the divorce process, it can still be overwhelming. That’s why our service continues even after you have your completed divorce papers in hand. Included with our service is the option to schedule a phone consultation with your case manager who can answer any questions you may have or even walk you through each step of the process if necessary.
The bottom line is that if you and your spouse can agree on the terms of your divorce, then an online divorce is the fastest, easiest and least expensive option to dissolve your marriage. Whether you have children, own a home or own other property, as long as you and your spouse can reach an agreement on all such issues, then you are eligible to use our online divorce and dissolution services to file your dissolution in Alaska.
Click the Start Now button to begin the process today.
An uncontested divorce or dissolution is one in which both spouses have reached an agreement on all the major issues, such as property division, division of debt, child custody, child support, and spouse support.
A contested divorce in one in which the spouses cannot reach an agreement on the major issues and, as a result, the court will have to decide the final outcome on the disputed issues.
In either type of divorce or in a dissolution, the process starts by one spouse filing for divorce or dissolution.
Benefits to an Uncontested Divorce or Dissolution
Save Money. Spouses save a significant amount of money in an uncontested divorce vs. a contested divorce. Instead of paying the high attorney’s fees that accompany a contested divorce, that money stays in the parties’ pockets.
Save Time. Because the spouses have already reached an agreement on the important issues, the paperwork is stream-lined and the parties don’t have to spend time attending multiple court hearings and formal negations that can take many months or even years to complete.
Save Mental Health. Fighting your divorce out in court adds additional stress to an already difficult situation. An uncontested divorce results in a much easier and less stressful legal process.
We created our Alaska online divorce service to maximize these benefits. ReliableDivorce.com provides the lowest price online divorce service in the market with the fastest results. You receive your divorce papers immediately after completing our online questionnaire so you can file your divorce today or any other day you choose.
How to File for Divorce in Alaska Without a Lawyer
There is no requirement that you have a lawyer to file for divorce in Alaska. In fact, in many Alaska courts, more than half of all divorces are filed and completed without any lawyer involvement. Once you sign up to use our online divorce service, you simply fill out our online questionnaire to begin your divorce paperwork. We provide you with all the paperwork needed to file and complete your divorce along with detailed instructions for every step of the process.
The first step in filing for a divorce is to make sure the state's residency requirements are met.
Unlike most states, Alaska does not have any traditional residency requirements that must be met before filing for a divorce in the state. This means you do not have to live in Alaska for a certain amount of time before you may file divorce papers in an Alaskan court. The only requirement is that at the time of filing, you must be a current resident of Alaska and intend on remaining in the state after your divorce is final. [Alaska Stat §25.24.090].
Likewise, Alaska law does not require that you reside in a county for a certain period of time before you may file for divorce in that county. Rather, divorce papers may be filed in the county where either spouse lives.
Detailed court-filing instructions are included with your completed divorce papers, so that you know how the process works.
It may be necessary to follow up if any issues in your documents arise after you file your initial paperwork. We offer you the flexibility to make small adjustments to your divorce forms at no additional cost when you use our online divorce service. Our online divorce service is designed to make your divorce as easy and stress-free as possible.
No Fault Divorce
Because you can only use ReliableDivorce.com's online divorce services if your divorce is uncontested (that is, you and your spouse agree to the terms of the divorce), we only include the no-fault ground for divorce in your divorce papers. Since you generally have to prove fault-based grounds, such as adultery, the fault-based grounds are found in contested divorces.
A "No-Fault" divorce in Alaska simply means there is "incompatibility of temperament which has caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage." Basically, this means that the spouses can no longer live together and any attempts at reconciliation are futile and not in the best interests of either party. [Alaska Stat §25.24.200].
Child Custody and Visitation in Alaska
Legal Custody in Alaska
Legal custody refers to who has the right and obligation to make decisions regarding a child's upbringing, such as medical care, education, and overall welfare of the child.
Legal custody is determined based exclusively on what is in the child's best interest. [Alaska Stat §25.24.150].
Joint/Shared Legal Custody is where both parents have the right to participate in making the major decisions affecting the child.
Sole Legal Custody is where only one parent has the right to make decisions affecting the child.
In Alaska, it is presumed that joint/shared legal custody is appropriate unless proven otherwise. This means the court favors joint/shared legal custody, but not necessarily equal physical custody of a child.
Physical Custody in Alaska
Physical custody refers to where a child will physically reside the majority of the time. Thus, both parents will often have joint/shared legal custody while only one parent will have primary physical custody of a child (referred to as the "custodial parent") and the other parent (referred to as the "non-custodial parent") will have visitation.
In Alaska, the non-custodial parent generally has the same visitation rights regardless of whether sole legal custody or joint legal custody is ordered in the divorce decree. There are exceptions to this general rule of course, such as when there is a history of domestic violence.
Visitation can be any schedule agreed upon by both parents and can be changed at any time provided both parents are in agreement. Basically, the parents are in control of visitation provided they both agree to it and it is in the best interest of the child. If the parents cannot reach an agreement on visitation then the court will require the parents to follow a specific schedule that is determined by the court. The state provides guidelines on visitation and many parents find it easier to just go by the standard guideline visitation schedule. This will be explained in more detail in your divorce papers.
Alaska law requires that child support be paid on behalf of each minor child born from the marriage. State-mandated guidelines are used to determine the amount of the child support obligation. [Alaska Code of Civ. Proc., Rule 90.3]. Using the Alaska child support calculator is best for determining the amount of child support to be paid. The child support calculator uses the child support guidelines prescribed by Alaska law. In the event that you and your spouse cannot agree on this issue, the court will use the same calculation as the basis for determining the support obligation. Our online divorce service provides you a child support calculator that uses the state's guidelines to calculate monthly child support based on the spouse's monthly income and other factors set forth under Alaska law.
The child support obligation in Alaska generally continues until the child is eighteen (18) years old or is otherwise emancipated. However, under certain circumstances, this obligation may extend beyond a child turning eighteen (18), for example when a child turns eighteen (18), but still has one more year in high school. The most common way to pay child support is to have the amount deducted directly from the payor's wages.
Alaska Divorce Forms
Our Alaska forms are guaranteed to be approved by the court. Our software determines what forms are needed and how to correctly complete the forms based on the answers you provide when completing our online questionnaire. Our software is updated anytime there is a change in the Alaska law that affects the divorce process and requirements. Our service makes the divorce process as seamless as possible and at a price that meets almost any budget.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my dissolution take?
Short Answer: 45-60 days.
Detailed Answer: Alaska has a mandatory 30-day waiting period that begins when the initial petition is filed. This means the court cannot finalize any dissolution until after this 30-day waiting period has expired. However, the actual time it takes will largely depend on how quickly you and your spouse complete and file all the necessary paperwork and the judge's schedule. Assuming there are no major hurdles, it is reasonable to expect your dissolution to be finalized 45-60 days after filing the initial papers.
What documents are needed to file for dissolution in Alaska?
Short Answer: 1) Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, 2) Information Sheet and 3) Certificate of Divorce, Dissolution of Marriage or Annulment.
Detailed Answer: Our online divorce service will provide you all of the forms needed for the entire dissolution process along with detailed instructions for every step. If you have any questions along the way, you may also schedule a call with one of our legal professionals who will walk you through the process.
How soon can I get remarried after my dissolution or divorce is final?
Short Answer: Immediately.
Detailed Answer: Alaska law does not have a mandatory waiting period between finalizing a dissolution or divorce and when a party may marry another person. A dissolution in Alaska becomes final when the Judge signs and enters the final decree.
Can I file for dissolution or divorce in Alaska if my spouse lives in another state?
Short Answer: Yes.
Detailed Answer: Alaska only requires that, at the time the initial paperwork is filed, the filing party be a current resident of Alaska with the intent to remain living in the state. As long as you live in Alaska and plan on remaining in the state for the foreseeable future, then you may file for dissolution or divorce in Alaska even though your spouse resides in another state.
How long do I need to live in Alaska before I can file for dissolution or divorce?
Short Answer: There is no minimum time requirement.
Detailed Answer: Even if you have only lived in Alaska for one day, as long as you currently live in Alaska and intend on remaining in the state after your dissolution or divorce is final, then you may file for dissolution or divorce at any time.
