Is there anyone here who has been through the annulment process and is willing to share some of their experience?

Thanks

For statistics the best source is the "Statistical Yearbook of the Church". That is likely available at a Catholic college if you live near one.
This was derived from there:

"Despite this decline, the United States, with 5.9 percent of the world’s Catholics, still accounts for 60 percent of the Church’s 58,322 declarations of nullity (2007 statistics in the Vatican Secretariat of State’s Statistical Yearbook of the Church). Of the 35,009 declarations of nullity granted in the US, 79 percent were granted through the ordinary process, while 21 percent were granted through the documentary process."
