Alaska tops the list of states with the highest rate of divorce, according to this handy tool from FindTheData.org. Perhaps not so coincidentally, Alaska also has the highest score when it comes to "ease of filing." A divorce in Alaska can be processed in as few as 30 days.
The site explains that the divorce rate is "recorded as divorces per every 1,000 state residents who are over the age of 15." On the site, the divorce rate is presented per year. Alaska has the highest rate at 14, but Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma are close behind, at 13 divorces per 1,000 residents. New Jersey has the lowest rate, at six.
In addition to rate, ease of filing and minimum processing time, the site also allows users to compare filing fees. Florida has the highest filing fee, at $409. The lowest? Mississippi, where it only costs $52 to untie the knot.
