Can I use my spouse's appraisal report?
Your spouse has ordered an appraisal, should you use it? That depends, do you trust your spouse to hire an experience impartial appraiser? If yes, then by all means use the appraisal. Not sure?
Our advise is to order your own report and know that the estimated market value is well supported and defensible in court.
Why do I need my house appraised?
Divorce is a very difficult, if not a traumatic experience. And is often only exacerbated by the fact of what’s going to happen to the house. If one of the parties wants to keep the house, then they’ll need to establish what a fair market value is. This is usually done in one of three ways, or in a combination there of: tax assessed value, an appraisal from a certified appraiser, or a Realtors’ market analysis.Whatever method is used for determining value they should be familiar with IRS Real Property Valuation Guide Lines, especially if the report will be used for tax purposes in the future.
Many times a second appraisal may also be needed to establish a value if one of the parties owned the home prior to the marriage. Knowledge of how to perform a retrospective appraisal is critical and essential.
Appraisers are not supposed to be advocates; however, that doesn’t mean that one can’t lend a listening or comforting ear. While there are times when one-or both sides may be pressuring for a lower/higher value, most of the time I find that the parties involved just want to know what the fair market value is for their home. I try and be sensitive to the situation, and I always remind the parties involved that I’m there just to gather the facts.

The Impact of Divorce
Compared to other losses that may occur at midlife or older, people age 40 and older generally feel that divorce is more emotionally devastating than losing a job, about equal to experiencing a major illness, and somewhat less devastating than a spouse’s death. When two or more life‐churning events occur near the same time, one can only imagine the emotional devastation someone has to face.
