Divorce Appraisals in the state of Wisconsin by Active Appraisal Services, Inc.Divorce settlements involve many decisions, including who gets the house. There are generally two choices 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.
