The Family Law Review issued a bulletin which summarizes it well (which can be accessed by clicking here). Take a look, and those of you who practice law in Georgia, please review it carefully.

The court has entrusted us with discretion to not overwhelm the Court with non-meritorious appeals. Let’s oblige.
