I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
Yes, you should be able to each sign the papers separately and have each signature witnessed by a different notary if the papers require that both spouses sign. The other option is to file forms that only you have to sign (which is what happens when the spouses can't agree or only one spouse wants a divorce). Or you could fly to San Diego and get the forms notarized together, but that's probably not the best option if you weren't already planning a trip to CA.
It's important that you are 100% satisfied with my courtesy and professionalism. Thank you.
The state of Alaska puts step-by-step instructions on their website at the link I've given you. They have classes you can take for help filling out the forms if you prefer to have someone more hands-on help you. They also have a Help Center you can call or visit to get much more in-depth help than what I am allowed to give.
The packet of forms for a contested divorce without minor children is here.
If you have a specific question about something in the packet, I am happy to answer it. But I can't give you better instructions than the state of Alaska for filling out their own forms. It wouldn't make any sense for me to just copy/paste their directions without knowing what it is you're looking for help with, and I'm afraid I can't afford to spend several hours retyping it.
