In the United States, getting divorced in some states can be an extremely lengthy and taxing process for couples who want to move on with their lives, Newsweek reported on May 17.
Some states, including Oklahoma, Arizona and Utah, require divorcing couples with children to take parenting classes. Others mandate an extensive period of separation prior to filing for divorce. In Arkansas, this period is 18 months. The standard processing time in this state once the couple has filed can also take up to 540 days–over a year and a half.
