Effective January 1, 2018 - Senate Bill 132 - New Civil and Domestic Forms on Website

Print

Effective January 1, 2018 Senate Bill 132 amended Georgia law for all civil case initiation and disposition forms for superior and state courts, which are available on the clerk’s website.

Title 9 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to civil practice, is amended by revising Code Section 9-11-133, relating to forms meeting requirements for civil case filing and disposition, as follows:

“9-11-133.
The Judicial Council of Georgia, with the approval of the Supreme Court, shall promulgate forms to be used for civil case filing and disposition forms information; provided, however, that the general civil case filing information form and domestic relations case filing information form shall be required to contain an acknowledgement by the filer that the complaint and any exhibits or other attachments satisfy the redaction requirements of Code Section 9-11-7.1.”

“19-9-1.2. Pursuant to Code Section 9-11-3, and in addition to the filing requirements contained in Code Section 19-6-15, in all proceedings under this article the plaintiff shall file a domestic relations case filing information form prescribed by the Judicial Council of Georgia.”

No case will be initiated and no judgment will be entered without a properly completed form.
