Dividing marital assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing the house - 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 be wise to get an appraisal of the shared real estate.
