Dividing marital assets?
We realize that divorce is never easy. There are many choices to worry about, including what happens to the shared residence. There are generally two alternatives when it comes to 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.

For legal professionals representing a client in a divorce, your case's evidence typically requires an appraisal to ascertain fair market value for the residential real estate involved. Often the divorce date may not be the same as the date you ordered the appraisal. We're comfortable with the methods and requirements necessary to do a retroactive appraisal that has an effective date and Fair Market Value conclusion that matches the date of divorce. We work on a reasonable number of divorce appraisals and we understand that they require prudence delicately. The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) contains an ethics provision which compels us to keep the highest degree of confidentiality, guaranteeing you the utmost discretion.
