Splitting up marital assets?We understand that divorce is never easy. There are numerous choices to worry about, including what happens to the house. There are generally two alternatives regarding 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 would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the shared real estate.
