Splitting up marital assets?
We understand that divorce is never easy. There are countless decisions to worry about, including what's going to happen to the house. There are generally two alternatives regarding common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the residence.
