Georgia, SB 298, No Fault

Last week the Georgia Senate passed a bill that would require a 180 day waiting period (up from 30 day) for couples filing divorce using the no fault standard. This would not apply to divorces in which domestic violence was an issue. It also includes some facts about children from divorced homes and the governments interest in marriage. My question is, if you allow domestic abuse divorces to proceed more quickly, what prevents people from falsely claiming abuse. For a woman, it will both expedite the divorce as well as give her an advantage in a custody determination.
