Connecticut (12)

Filing fee: $225

Minimum processing time: 90 days

Divorce rate: 8.7

It's sort of like common law marriage, with divorce. In Connecticut, you have to wait seven years, "during all of which period the absent party has not been heard from," before being granted dissolution of marriage to satisfy an abandonment cause for a fault divorce. Residency is required to get a divorce, although there is no minimum residency if cause for the divorce happened within Connecticut's borders.
