Dividing marital assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two alternatives when it comes to the house - it can be sold and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the shared real estate.
