Dividing marital assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives regarding the shared residence - it can be put up for sale 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 shared real estate.
