Splitting up marital assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives when it comes to common real estate - it can be sold 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 mutual real estate.
