Anchorage Divorce Attorney
No married person ever wants to have to contact a divorce attorney. However, when you need to make that call, it is important to call an attorney who is prepared for the job.
At The Law Offices of Herbert M. Pearce, I have been handling complex, contentious divorce cases for more than 18 years. I provide experienced legal guidance and attentive client service to clients from Anchorage and throughout the surrounding areas.
Preparing for the Future
While divorce marks the end of a marital relationship, it marks the beginning of a whole new chapter in your life. Sound legal planning can help you start this new chapter on a stable financial footing.
In handling divorce cases, I work with my clients personally to understand their goals and craft a legal strategy that suits their unique circumstances. With more than 18 years of experience in Alaska divorce law, I am equipped to handle a wide range of divorce cases, from relatively simple, uncontested divorces, to complex, high-conflict divorces involving high assets and contentious disputes.
Alternatives to Divorce
In Alaska, married couples have other legal options in addition to divorce.
- Dissolution: Dissolution is often preferred by couples who have relatively few assets and are generally in agreement over property division, alimony and other legal issues. Dissolution legally ends the marriage, while typically avoiding a lot of the time and expense of divorce.
- Legal separation: Oftentimes, a married couple will get a legal separation, which addresses many of the same issues as divorce, including property division, child custody and alimony. However a legal separation allows one spouse to maintain the insurance benefits from the other spouse’s policy. Legal separations are also sought by people whose religious beliefs do not allow them to get divorced.
