Working on a divorce? Joseph Mier & Associates has the specific competence you need.
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 split, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would be wise to commission an appraisal of the joint real estate.
