Survey Article


Of the domestic relations cases decided by the Georgia Supreme Court and the Georgia Court of Appeals during the survey period, twenty-seven are digested here. Possibly the most notable events of the survey period were pieces of legislation that were not enacted. A bill to restore direct appeals for certain domestic relations cases did not make it to the Governor's desk, and the Governor vetoed a bill that would have required trial judges hearing custody cases to consider the custodial elections of children between the ages of twelve and fourteen. While the Georgia General Assembly otherwise focused on ways to aid in enforcing child support judgments, the appellate courts addressed a variety of issues.
