We understand that divorce is a painful process. There are numerous issues to worry about, including what to do with the shared residence. There are generally two options regarding real estate - 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 should commission an appraisal of the residence.
