Many people don’t like to think about divorce, but unfortunately it does happen. Equitable distribution should be the main goal of divorce settlements – that’s where a professional personal property appraiser comes in to the picture. By having a neutral, unbiased – and most importantly – professional opinion of value, the distribution process could become relatively quick and painless. A professional appraiser should be hired when it comes down to furniture, art, antiques, collectibles, and other household items, to ensure fair distribution. Your lawyer will receive a thorough report that satisfies the requirements of court ordered equitable distribution. Therefore, you will cut down attorney cost and litigation time and experience much quicker negotiations.
