In addition to the steps below, the State of Alaska has made an Official Guide (CIV-720) to help the landlord complete the eviction process.

1. Download Forms

The landlord must begin the process by deciding which notice to quit best fits their situation;

2. File Forms

After serving the tenant with the appropriate form and they remain on the property, violating the notice, the landlord must file the Complaint (Form CIV-730) (Attach a copy of the Notice to Quit). An eviction case is filed in the District Court Location where the property is located.

The following must also be filed:

A fee for the amount of $150 for up to $10,000 in damages. If damages are over $10,000, the filing fee is $250.[12]

3. Serve the Papers

A copy of the filed Complaint (CIV-730) and Summons (CIV-105) must be sent to the Defendant. The Service Instructions (CIV-615) must be used to guide the process server. After the Defendant has been served, they will file a form called the Return of Service that will be served to the landlord and the court.

4. Tenant Files an Answer

The tenant will have a maximum of twenty (20) days to file an Answer (CIV-735) with the court.

5. Attend Hearing

Both parties should attend the hearing, and the Judge will only rule on whether the landlord is entitled to possession of the property and not if they are granted damages. After the hearing is complete and the landlord wants damages, the court will typically automatically set an additional trial hearing. If not, the petitioner must file the Memorandum to Set Civil Case For Trial (CIV-200).
