South Dakota (5)

Filing fee: $95

Minimum processing time: 60 days

Divorce rate: 9.9

It costs $95 to untie the knot in South Dakota. That relatively low fee could one day prove helpful to the young people who get married in the state, which features a low median age of 25.8 years. Of course, hopefully it won't come to that.
