Alaska Residency and Filing Requirements

Alaska has certain residency requirements for filing a divorce action. If the residency requirements are not met, the court will not have jurisdiction to hear the case. The court will either not accept the case or will dismiss the case.

The residency requirements must be met when the case if first filed. If you don't meet the requirements, you must either wait until you meet the rule on residency or file your divorce in another state where you meet the requirements.

To file for divorce/dissolution in Alaska, the filing spouse must be a resident of the state. To be considered a resident for purposes of divorce/dissolution, one must be in Alaska when filing with the intention of remaining as a resident.

If the spouse seeking the divorce doesn't live in Alaska and the couple was married outside of the state, but the other spouse is an Alaska resident, it is permittable to file for divorce/dissolution in Alaska.

Alaska Grounds for Divorce

The first divorce form filed in the Alaska court - either a petition or complaint - must state the grounds for the divorce. The appropriate grounds for a Alaska divorce are either the grounds that both parties can agree on and can substantiate in a divorce hearing or which the filing party chooses to prove to the court.

The Alaska court has power to divorce a couple from their marriage on the following grounds:

No-Fault:
  1. Incompatibility of temperament which has caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage
Fault:
  1. failure to consummate the marriage at the time of the marriage and continuing at the commencement of the action.
  2. Adultery.
  3. Conviction of a felony.
  4. Willful desertion for a period of one year.
  5. Cruel and inhuman treatment, personal indignities rendering life burdensome.
  6. Habitual gross drunkenness contracted since marriage and continuing for one year prior to the commencement of the action.
  7. Incurable mental illness when the spouse has been confined to an institution for a period of at least 18 months immediately preceding the commencement of the action; the status as to the support and maintenance of the mentally ill person is not altered in any way by the granting of the dissolution of marriage.
  8. addiction of either party, subsequent to the marriage, to the habitual use of opium, morphine, cocaine, or a similar drug.
