Dividing marital assets?
We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are countless decisions to worry about, including the status of the home. There are generally two options when discussing the shared residence - it can be sold 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 order an appraisal of the residence.
