Dividing marital assets?
We know that divorce can be very difficult. There are many choices that have to be resolved, including what's going to happen to the house. There are generally two alternatives when discussing real estate - it can be put on the market 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 commission an appraisal of the joint real estate.
