Could you give me a rough estimate of how many U.S. states allow dissolution of marriage without a hearing before a judge but just by paperwork alone? My supposed friend the law school professor told me that there are very few places where paperwork alone is sufficient for a divorce. He suggested the venue of the Dominican Republic or Guam, and said that they are among the very few venues that allow paperwork only divorces.
