Splitting up marital assets?
We know that divorce is never easy. There are many decisions looming, including what to do with the shared residence. There are generally two options when discussing real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should commission an appraisal of the residence.
