Dividing assets?We realize that divorce is a painful process. There are many decisions that have to be settled, including the status of the home. 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 be wise to commission an appraisal of the residence.
When the reason for an appraisal is a divorce settlement, it must have a well-supported, expert value conclusion that is defensible in court.

As a lawyer representing a client in a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to determine market value for the residential real estate involved. A lot of the time the divorce date can be different from the date you ordered the appraisal. We are familiar with the techniques and what's mandatory to do a retrospective appraisal that has an effective date and Market Value conclusion that matches the date of divorce.
