The General Assembly of Georgia, during the 1950 regular session, enacted three statutes modifying and repealing existing statutes dealing with divorce and domestic relations.

Probably the most important change in the divorce laws of Georgia was the amendment by the I950 Legislature of Code Section 30-107 reducing the required period of a petitioner's residence within the state before filing an application for divorce from twelve months to six months. The residence requirement of twelve months was enacted in 1893, and this amendment is the only change in the period of required residence since that time.
