As far as divorce law goes, in what country and/or state is the best place for a man to get a divorce? (I.e., where will he receive the most favorable terms?)

    You need to be more explicit with what you mean. Unless you mean some states physically sever the man into two equal pieces, in which case I have follow up questions. Do you mean dividing the assets equally? – jimsug Oct 29 '15 at 21:02
  • Everywhere that has equal rights for men and women. You both became one, so when you split it should , in most cases, be in half. – Terry Oct 30 '15 at 13:56

    Some countries do not recognize divorce (e.g., Philippines). Some countries are heavily biased in favor of wife, especially with respect to custody of children (e.g., Japan). – user3270 Nov 1 '15 at 18:39

Your options are generally limited by where you have (or can establish) residency, along with where your communal property is held.

There are (decreasing numbers of) jurisdictions known as "divorce mills" that have notoriously lenient rules for establishing residency and completing divorces.
