Approximately forty percent of marriages in the United States end in divorce. The divorce rate is attributed to several reasons and often results in complicated legal disputes.
How can a real estate expert witness be of help during a divorce? Here’s why you should hire one during the proceedings.
Divorces Can Be Messy
Let us be honest; divorces can be messy and stressful. As much as you may want to have an amicable divorce, sometimes this isn’t possible. If both sides are unable to reach an agreement, they may end up with unusual settlements.
If you think there is a chance of your divorce proceedings being unpleasant and real estate is involved, it’s best to hire a real estate expert witness early in the process.An unbiased opinion regarding the real estate value is one less thing to argue about when splitting assets. Even seemingly amicable divorces can take a turn for the worse when topics,such as the value of the real estate,are discussed. It is better to have a real estate expert witness involvedbefore things get sour, rather than look for one afterward.
They Provide Unbiased Representation
Real estate expert witnesses provide neutral, objective, and unbiased representation. Experts are not emotionally connected to your case, and thus, have no prior biases. An impartial opinion helps your case because their testimony is based on the market, available data, and their training and, not their relationship with you.
