REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON JURIS

PRUDENCE AND LAW REFORM.

To the Georgia Bar Association :

The Committee on Jurisprudence and Law Reform beg leave to report as follows upon the several matters referred to them :

I.

Bills Proposed by the American Bar Association to Promote Uniformity

in the Laws of the Several States. At a meeting of the American Bar Association, in 1882, it was resolved that the Local Councils, State and Local Bar Associations. should be requested to advocate the enactment, in their respective States, of a statute of which the following is a draft :

AN ACT TO PREVENT FRAUDULENT DIVORCES.

The jurisdiction of the courts of this State, in suits for divorce, shall. be confined to the following classes of cases :

1. Where both parties were domiciled within this State when the action was commenced.

2. Where the plaintiff was domiciled within this State when the action was commenced, and the defendant was personally served with process within this State.

3. Where one of the parties was domiciled within this State when the action was commenced, and one or the other of them actually resided within this State for one year next preceding the commencement of the action.

Your committee have no hesitation in recommending the enactment of such a statute. The only change it will work in the existing laws of our State is the requirement (as in section 3) that one of the parties to the suit shall have actually resided in the State for one year next preceding the commencement of the action. At present our law requires residence, but does not prescribe the time of residence. We think the requirement of at least one year's residence is entirely proper, especially when we reflect upon the alarming increase in the number of divorces granted in the United States.

The American Bar Association, at its meeting in 1882, likewise recommended the passage by the legislatures of the several States of a statute of which the following is a copy:

AN ACT RELATING TO ACKNOWLEDGMENTS OF INSTRUMENTS AFFECT

ING REAL ESTATE.

SECTION 1.—The following forms of acknowledgment may be used in the case of conveyances or other written instruments affecting real estate ; and any acknowledgment so taken and certified shall be sufficient to satisfy all requirements of law relating to the execution or recording of such instruments.

[ Begin in all cases by a caption specifying the State and place where the acknowledgment is taken. ]

1. In the case of natural persons acting in their own right. On this day of

18 , before me personally appeared A B (or A B and CD), to me known to be the person (or persons) de. -scribed in and who executed the foregoing instrument, and acknowledged that he (or they) executed the same as his (or their) free act and deed.

day of

day of

2. In the case of natural persons acting by attorney. On this

, 18 , before me personally appeared A B, to me known to be the person who executed the foregoing instrument in behalf of C D, and acknowledged that he executed the same, as the free act and deed of said CD.

3. In the case of corporations or joint stock associations. On this

18 , before me appeared A B, to me personally known, who, being by me duly sworn (or affirmed), did say that he is the president (or other officer or agent of the corporation or association) of (describing the corporation or association), and that the seal affixed to said instrument is the corporate seal of said corporation (or association), and that said instrument was signed and sealed in behalf of said corporation (or association), by authority of its Board of Directors (or trustees), and said A B acknowledged said instrument to be the free act and deed of said corporation (or association).

[In case the corporation or association has no corporate seal, omit the words, ""the seal affixed to said instrument is the corporate seal of said corporation (or association) and that,” and add, at the end of the affidavit clause, the words, “and that said corporation (or association) has no corporate seal."']

[In all cases add signature and title of the officer taking the acknowledgment.]
