The Georgia Supreme Court has decided that a medical school education, a medical license, and contingent fee contracts are not marital property subject to equitable division. The court also declared that a judgment modifying alimony is effective no earlier than the date of the judgment and that an award of joint legal custody does not preclude an award of child support. This Article is divided into three sections. Section I covers cases dealing with child support and visitation; Section II covers cases dealing with settlement agreements, alimony, and equitable division; and Section III deals with contempt.
