Dividing marital assets?
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are many decisions to worry about, including the status of the home. There are generally two options when discussing common real estate - it can be sold 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.
