Splitting up marital assets?
We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are numerous decisions looming, including the status of the house. There are generally two choices when discussing the shared residence - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should commission an appraisal of the joint real estate.
