Splitting Up Marital Assets?
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including who keeps the house. There are generally two options when it comes to the house - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to conduct an appraisal of the real estate.

For lawyers dealing with a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to establish market value for the residential real estate involved. Many times the divorce date differs from the date you ordered the appraisal. We're accustomed to the process of a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value opinion that matches the date of divorce. For each divorce appraisal we handle, we remain conscious of the fact that they need to be handled delicately.
