Splitting up marital assets?
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when discussing the shared residence - it can be put up for sale 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 shared real estate.
