Dividing marital assets?
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when it comes to the shared residence - it can be sold and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to get an appraisal of the shared real estate.
