Dividing marital assets?
Settling a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when discussing the shared residence - it can be put on the market and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to get an appraisal of the residence.
