Divorce can raise many questions. 

One of the main ones is “what about the house?” 

A house is not only typically a couple’s largest asset, but it is also often the asset with the most emotional attachment.  Your spouse and you decided that this was where you were going to spend the happiest of times – raising children and building a life. This emotional attachment can make it impossible to let go of and assign a value to. The personal importance of a house can make it the lynchpin of property division negotiations.  

If you were recently in a car accident, then you have also likely been contacted by an auto insurance company recently.  When they reach out to claimants, they always start by showing a friendly face.  As nice as they might be, remember that they are a company that needs to make a yearly profit like any other business.  Your best interests are not their priority, and you should not be surprised when an auto insurance company tries to use some clever tactics throughout your claim to save their bottom line at your expense. 

On November 9, 2020, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) voted 3-2 to release a proposed update to Section 12 of the EEOC Compliance Manual addressing religious discrimination.  Section 12 of the Compliance Manual has not been revised since 2008.  The public has until December 17, 2020 to issue comments to the proposed update, which can be done at https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/guidance/section-12-religious-discrimination
