Q: How do I find information on the number of divorce cases filed in San Diego County in 2008 and 2009?

This week’s most challenging question by far but we were able to locate the information online in the San Diego Superior Court’s Internal Audit Report. For fiscal year 2008-2009, a total of 760,757 filings were received and out of these filings, 24,938 were family law petitions (pages vi & vii). The Internal Audit Report is a very interesting read and reports on four major areas: court administration, cash controls, court revenues and expenditure and general operations.
