Divorce Appraisals in the state of LA by Joseph Mier & Associates
Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including "Who gets the house". There are generally two options when it comes to the shared residence - it can be sold 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 mutual real estate.

As a legal professional working with a divorce, your case's research regularly needs an appraisal to ascertain fair market value for the residential real estate involved.
