Dividing marital assets?
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are countless decisions that have to be resolved, including what to do with the house. There are generally two alternatives when discussing real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the residence.
