Splitting up marital assets?
We realize that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless issues to worry about, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two choices regarding the house - 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 should commission an appraisal of the residence.
