According to the Annual Report of the Tennessee Judiciary, Tennessee trial courts disposed of 298,107 cases from July 2008 through June 2009. Of those, 60,320, or 20%, were domestic relations cases.

Of the 60,320 domestic relations cases, 30,632 were divorce cases, with 13,755, or 45%, being divorce cases involving minor children. Of the divorce cases with minor children, 78% were settled by the parties, 10% were dismissed, withdrawn, or transferred, and 12% went to trial.

From July 2008 through June 2009, Tennessee trial courts disposed of 20,728 post-divorce disputes. The vast majority of these post-divorce matters involved child support (42%) and contempt (45%) issues. Only 12% were related to modifying parenting plans/residential parenting schedules.

This data supplements my earlier post on Tennessee’s divorce statistics.
