This survey period saw major changes to domestic relations law. With the political changes in the state legislature came sweeping reforms to what seemed to be deeply entrenched laws. Although Georgia law presently requires appeals of all domestic relations cases occurring through the discretionary application process, the Georgia Supreme Court extended its 2003 pilot project into its third year, agreeing to accept all "non-frivolous" applications filed in divorce and alimony cases. As a result, those interested in domestic relations law have benefited from many more substantive decisions from the appellate courts on a variety of issues. Revisions to the Uniform Superior Court Rules also provided much needed guidance in an area of domestic relations law where little guidance existed.
