Most television shows and movies would have you believe that divorce cases always involve a courtroom trial. In reality, divorce cases rarely make it to trial. It is certainly possible that a divorce case is resolved through a trial, but much more often, the spouses are able to negotiate a settlement.

Sexual harassment victims have the right to take legal action against an employer who failed to prevent or address sexual harassment. If you have been subjected to sexual harassment at work, you have the burden of proof to show that the facts that you are alleging in a sexual harassment case are true. Courts will pay close attention to the evidence that backs your claim. You can help your case when you have documentation that helps prove your allegations against the employer. Here are three ways that you can document a sexual harassment claim.

 Divorce can stir up a wide range of emotions, including anger, resentment, and betrayal. Some divorcing spouses take out their anger on the other spouse by intentionally wasting or destroying marital property in an act of revenge. For example, a spouse infuriated at the thought of divorce may throw the other spouse’s personal property in the trash, drain the joint checking account at the casino, or spend thousands of dollars on luxury items.

By now, most people know that sexual harassment or discrimination against an employee on the basis of sex or gender is unlawful. However, less is known about the laws regarding retaliation.

 Divorce officially and permanently ends a marriage. However, divorcing spouses may still be involved in each other 's lives, and there may be times when they need to return to court to modify part of their divorce decree. For example, parents who experience life changes such as remarriage, relocation, or a new job may need to modify the allocation of parental responsibilities or parenting time. Similarly, a significant change in financial circumstances may warrant modifying the child support or spousal support order.
