Splitting up marital assets?
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are many choices looming, including what's going to happen to the house. There are generally two alternatives when discussing 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 should commission an appraisal of the residence.
