Dividing marital assets?Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two options when discussing common real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the common real estate.
When the purpose of an appraisal is the division of assets, it needs a well-supported, authoritative appraisal document that is defensible during a trial.
