Child Custody And Visitation Laws In Alaska

In the wake of a divorce, understandably parents want to have an ongoing, continued and healthy relationship with their children.

If you are working through custody and visitation issues, it is important to have an experienced legal advocate in your corner advocating for you and your children.

With more than three decades of family law experience, we at Aglietti, Offret & Woofter, are prepared to do everything we can to reach an ideal resolution to any custody or visitation issue.

Alaska statute 25.24.150 C contains nine factors that a court considers when determining child custody and visitation. They are:

  • The physical, emotional, mental, religious and social needs of the child
  • The capability and desire of each parent to meet these needs
  • The child's preference if the child is of sufficient age and capacity to form a preference
  • The love and affection existing between the child and each parent
  • The length of time the child has lived in a stable, satisfactory environment and the desirability of maintaining continuity
  • The willingness and ability of each parent to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing relationship between the other parent and the child
  • Any evidence of domestic violence, child abuse or child neglect in the proposed custodial household or a history of violence between the parents
  • Evidence that substance abuse by either parent or other members of the household directly affects the emotional or physical well-being of the child
  • Other factors that the court considers pertinent
