DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – When love fails, Ohio may be the place to divorce.

Our partners at the Dayton Business Journal report that filing for a divorce in the Buckeye State won’t cost as much as other parts of the country.

Divorce filing fees in Ohio are $175. That puts the state in the middle of the pack.

However, the state ranks on the lower end for its ease of filing.

Florida was the most expensive place to file for divorce in the United States with filing fees of more than $400.

The cheapest is in Mississippi where fees start at $52.
