Dividing assets?Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two options when discussing 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 residence.
An appraisal for the purpose of asset division should include a well-supported, authoritative report that will hold up during a trial.
