Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You would be able to file for divorce in Alaska and as part of the divorce action you can ask the court to declare the marriage void as it was entered into by your spouse under fraudulent pretenses. Fraud is a ground to void a marriage in Alaska, even though Alaska does not have an actual annulment statute, it is their version to allow the court to declare the marriage void upon evidence of fraud. It is filed similar as a divorce action and the remedy requested is to ask the court to deem the marriage void based on fraud, which you bear the burden of proving.

Thank you for your reply.

I would suggest filing divorce action as soon as possible to prevent her from trying to make a larger claim on your assets.
