Splitting up marital assets?
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options regarding the house - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should order an appraisal of the joint real estate.
