The 5 mistakes men make in divorce

Whether you initiated the divorce or she did, divorce is still difficult. Robin Williams once said that divorce is like pulling your heart out through your wallet. As bad as it is, there are some common mistakes men can make that will actually make things worse.

Circumstances that influence visitation rights for fathers

Family courts in Alaska determine visitation and custody arrangements for parents who are seeking a divorce or were never married. People have the right to create a visitation schedule between themselves without a court having to impose a decision. Their separation or divorce agreements could explain the scheduling and duration of visitations. These are known as reasonable visitation rights because they were worked out by parents capable of communicating and cooperating.

Rights of grandparents in Alaska

In the state of Alaska, a grandparent may be entitled to either custody or visitation rights to a grandchild. However, state law does note that the child's parents will be granted custody over a non-parent if possible. Generally, grandparents can get custody if the parent is unfit or if there is a child welfare issue if the non-parent is not granted custody.

Paternity can establish your right to raise your child

Alaska fathers may not have been married when their children were born, but that does not mean they aren't rightful parents. If you break up with the mother, however, you might not be able to see your child again unless you take legal action.
