Splitting up assets?
We know that divorce can be very difficult. There are numerous issues that have to be settled, including the fate of the home. There are generally two choices when discussing the shared residence - it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the residence.
