A: Yes. OCGA Title 9, Chapter 5.

You can start with O.C.G.A 19-5-1, and go from there.

A: The Georgia code is just one part of what makes up divorce law. There are also hundreds of cases that interpret and clarify the law. If you have a specific question after reading, you may want to ask an attorney.
