what happens in a legal separation in the state of Alaska?
In a marriage and debts are separate, in one needs to declare bankruptcy, how does it affect the other?
1 Answer from Attorneys
There is no "legal separation" in Alaska. Divorce or continued marriage are the options.
If one spouse files for bankruptcy protection, and the other spouse does not, the financial situation of the non-filing spouse is not significantly affected.
