Dividing marital assets?
Divorce settlements involve 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 divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to order an appraisal of the joint real estate.
