Regaining custody of a child

Alaska fathers who have lost custody of their children may be able to get it back. The first step in the process is to determine why custody was taken away. In some cases, it may be because a father violated a court order or is being accused of abusing or neglecting the child. Therefore, a judge determined that it wasn't in the child's best interest for a dad to retain custody.

Modifying a child custody arrangement

If your and your ex-wife’s circumstances have changed, and your custody agreement no longer is feasible, you have the authority to modify the custody order in Alaska. Keeping the best interests of your child in mind, Alaska judges will diligently review the request and either approve or deny the claim.

However, the new law will not apply to alimony arrangements already in place before the TCJA officially goes into effect.
