Splitting up marital assets?
We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are many decisions that have to be resolved, including what's going to happen to the home. There are generally two alternatives regarding the shared residence - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the joint real estate.
