Handling a divorce? Sullivan Appraisals has the specific competence you're looking for.

I understand that divorce can be very difficult. There are countless issues to worry about, including what to do with the home. There are generally two alternatives when discussing the house - it can be sold and the proceeds divvied up, or one party can "buy out" the other. In either case, one or both parties would find it in their best interest to commission an appraisal of the residence.

A divorce appraisal requires a well-supported, expert appraisal document that will hold up in court. When you order an appraisal from Sullivan Appraisals, you are assured the best in service with courtesy and well-supported conclusions. Handling the special needs of a divorce situation is not a problem for me.

Sullivan Appraisals can help if you need an appraisal related to a divorce or other separation of assets.

California attorneys as well as accountants depend on my opinions when ascertaining what real property is worth for estates, divorces, or other disputes where it is in question.   I have a great deal of expertise dealing with all the parties involved and can readily handle your needs. I assemble appraisal documents that meet the requirements of the courts and various agencies.

For lawyers handling a divorce, your case's material facts customarily require an appraisal to determine market value for the residential real estate involved. Often the divorce date can be different from the date you requested the appraisal.  I'm accustomed to the methods and requirements necessary to perform a retrospective appraisal with an effective date and Market Value opinion matching the date of divorce. For each divorce appraisal I take on, I remain conscious of the fact that they need to be handled prudently. The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) contains an ethics provision which binds us with confidentiality, resulting in the utmost discretion.
