Splitting up marital assets?We understand that divorce is never easy. There are numerous decisions that have to be finalized, including the status of the shared residence. There are generally two choices regarding real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the common real estate.
