Dividing marital assets?
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are numerous decisions to worry about, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two options regarding common real estate - it can be sold 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 get an appraisal of the mutual real estate.
