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