Case Results

Proved that Dissolving a Guardianship was in Client’s Children’s Best Interests

In Alaska, the party seeking to dissolve a guardianship has the burden of proof when the court is asked to decide whether it is in the children's best interests to return to their parents' physical custody.  This burden of proof can make it extremely difficult for parents to regain physical custody of their children, even after they have abided by the terms of their OCS case plan.  

By working with Shortell Law LLC, our client was able to gather the materials and witness testimony she needed in order to satisfy that burden. The court found that it was in her children's best interests to return to her home.
