Dividing assets?We understand that divorce is never easy. There are countless choices to worry about, including what to do with the home. There are generally two choices regarding the house - it can be sold and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should commission an appraisal of the residence.
