Splitting up assets?
We understand that divorce can be very difficult. There are numerous choices to worry about, including the fate of the home. There are generally two alternatives when discussing the house - it can be put on the market and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to order an appraisal of the residence.
