We know that divorce is a painful process. There are numerous issues that have to be resolved, including what to do with the house. There are generally two choices when it comes to common real estate - 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 order an appraisal of the shared real estate.
