Divorce Appraisals in the state of CA by Chris Peterson
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two choices when discussing the house - it can be put up for sale and the proceeds divided, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties should get an appraisal of the residence.
