Sec. 25.24.450. Decree

(a) If a court finds that the grounds specified under AS 25.24.410 exist, the court may enter a decree of legal separation.

(b) Unless otherwise provided in the decree, provisions for child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal support included in a decree of legal separation are final orders subject to modification only as provided in AS 25.20.110 and AS 25.24.170.

(c) If the decree of legal separation includes provisions for division of property and debts of the marriage, the decree must state whether the division is an interim or final order. To the extent the division is not a final order, the court shall determine the parties’ respective rights to and responsibilities for property and obligations not finally distributed and as to any property or debts accrued by either party while the order is in effect.
