If there is a court order, such as in a divorce or dissolution, the courts usually set the amount of the child support payment.
In the absence of a support order, the agency will determine the child support obligation based on the guidelines established in Alaska Civil Court Rule 90.3. The guidelines are based on a percentage of the parents’ income. The percentage varies with the number of children and the type of custody.
Fees are only charged to reimburse the state for genetic tests, attorney fees and process server fees. The fees are charged to the parent who is ordered to pay child support. Other states may charge for some services if one of the parents lives in that state, even if the other parent lives in Alaska.
