The Act reorganizes Georgia trust law and codifies many common law principles that were previously recognized in Georgia law, but had not been incorporated into statutory law. The Act recognizes the validity of spendthrift trusts, and makes the allocation of principal and income in trusts more consistent with national trust law.
