Most states have county recorders where documents are recorded. Where can I go in Alaska to have documents recorded?
Country relating to Question: United StatesState (if USA): AlaskaWhat have you tried so far?: I have tried the the clerk's office.
DearCustomer- You have this posted under criminal law so I'm not certain what type of documents you wish to record. Real estate is generally recorded at the Dept of Natural Resources and here is their website. If this isn't what you are seeking let me know.
Commom Law Name Change Documents
Name changes are handled in the probate courts. I'm not certain of the area of Alaska law so I will opt out and allow the other lawyers to have a look.

Is the Department of Natural Resources the same as a county recorder?

I am not entering into an attorney client relationship, this is a public forum, and all posts are available for public viewing. There is no duty of confidentiality that attaches to any posts. With that in mind, do not post any specific information you do not want available for public viewing. The information provided is not a substitute for a local attorney’s legal advice.
Actually, I am trying to see where I documents are recorded in the state of Alaska. Alaska does not have counties like other states.
Yes, that is correct. When someone changes their name legally in AK, they must file a petition with the local Superior Court (CIV-700). Then the court clerk will give or mail you an Order for Hearing. This sets the hearing date for the motion. In most situations the court requires the applicant to publish a notice in the local newspaper called a "Notice of Petition to Change Name" once each week for 4 consecutive weeks to put the public on notice of the change petition. Then the person submits an Affidavit of Publication certifying that they have published the notice correctly. The court may also require the Notice to be posted in places set out in the order..After that, there is a formal hearing where the judge would determine whether there were sufficient reasons for the name change. Typically as long as it is not for purposes of avoiding creditors or evading law enforcement, it will be approved..The court then enters an order for the name change that is effective after another Publication of Notice of Judgment is published in the local paper. The court may also require the Notice to be posted again. After publication, the applicant submits proof of publishing and the clerk will issue a Certificate of Name Change (CIV-705). After that the order is final and the person can legally begin to use the new name..After that, the court clerk can file a report of name change (VS-405) with the Alaska Dept of Health and Social Services, Bureau of Vital Statistics.You can find the forms here about 1/4 down the page under "Special Proceedings".http://courts.alaska.gov/forms.htm#change.
