The legal fallout from divorce

On this fourth edition of Justice Alaska on Hometown Alaska, explore the many dimensions of family law. Co-host and legal expert Senior Judge Elaine Andrews will walk us through some of this complex territory.

What happens when folks decide to divorce? How do they divide property? What happens to a family home? What if the couple had a prenuptial agreement, or owned property before they married?

And then there’s the topic of children. How is custody decided? What if one party wants to move out of state? How does the age of children affect where and with whom they may be placed?

Who decides the amount of child support? How is that enforced?

We welcome calls from our listeners with questions and experiences in these areas. Remember, the only bad question is the one you don’t ask!
