Splitting up assets?We know that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless decisions to worry about, including what to do with the home. There are generally two alternatives 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 should order an appraisal of the shared real estate.
