Splitting up marital assets?
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are many issues that have to be resolved, including the fate of the shared residence. There are generally two alternatives regarding common real estate - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to order an appraisal of the shared real estate.
