About Appraisers and Insurance Agents

During the course of a divorce, assets are naturally to be divided. Several prominent assets may be real estate property, a business, personal property, and life insurance policies. In both cases, these types of professionals are paid on a commission basis. In the case of your home, you will need an accurate appraisal. One such method would be to contract a Certified Real Estate Appraiser or by getting estimates from multiple Real Estate Agents, each of whom would hope to be securing your future business. In either case, the best would be those who are most familiar with your neighborhood. With respect to insurance issues, it is never foolhardy to re-confirm the value of any life, health, disability, property and business insurance you may have. Determine whether or not a fee is incurred if a specific policy is cashed in or surrendered and the ACTUAL cash value of such, especially in the case of a life insurance policy as that would be "marital property" certain to be divided via the actual divorce process. When dealing with auto insurance, be certain that you will be paying only to insure yourself (or if applicable an eligible child).
