Dividing marital assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when it comes to common real estate - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the residence.
