Involved in a divorce? Diane Beachy has the specific competence you're looking for.
Finalizing a divorce involves many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing real estate - it can be sold and the proceeds divided, 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.
