We Care About Your Pets As Much As You Do
Pet custody is a fairly new concept in the realm of family law. In 2017, Alaska became the first state in the U.S. that allows judges to consider the well-being of a couple’s pets when issuing a divorce order. This leaves the possibility for parents to share custody or for the judge to award custody to just one spouse. As a veterinarian, our attorney Dr. Rachel Berngartt understands animal law in Alaska inside and out. We will do everything in our power to zealously advocate for you and your beloved companion.
Also Helping Unmarried Couples In Domestic Partnerships
Because Alaska does not recognize common law marriage, unmarried people do not have the same protected rights as married people when it comes to asset division and other issues. We have worked with many clients to resolve issues such as domestic partnership dissolution and property division for unmarried couples. You can turn to us to understand what your rights are when it comes to handling these issues as they relate to a long-term relationship that did not involve marriage, whether with or without children of the partnership.
