Dividing marital assets?
We know that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless choices to worry about, including what to do with the shared residence. There are generally two alternatives 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 residence.
