If you plan to move out of Alaska after your divorce is over, it could be possible to maintain custody if it is in the best interest of your children. However, you will probably have several things to consider.
Trucking is a major industry in Alaska and a crucial part of the state’s economic infrastructure. Truck-driving jobs are in high demand in Alaska and pay well. To drive a semitruck, you first must earn your commercial driver’s license (CDL) by training with an experienced driver and then passing a test. But if you’re convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs (DUI), your CDL could be at risk.
Some Alaska residents may think they have not done anything wrong if they have not actually committed a crime. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes people may commit a crime called conspiracy if they plan to commit an offense and take some of the steps needed to carry it out.
Every morning, you wake up and begin to take care of your many responsibilities. This may include getting the kids ready for school, helping your spouse with breakfasts and lunches, and maybe taking care of a few household chores before heading to work. You may discuss with your spouse the plans for the evening and maybe take something from the freezer to thaw for supper.
If police arrested you and charged you with a crime that carries serious penalties for conviction, you may already know you have a lot to be concerned about. A conviction for drug offenses, violent crimes, white collar crimes and others can result in prolonged time in jail or prison, thousands of dollars in fines and other penalties that could change the course of your life. Even a repeat-offense DUI carries stiff consequences.
