Among college-educated couples, divorce rates have actually declined since the 1970s, while rates among working-class couples and the less-educated have remained near the peak rates experienced in the 70s and early 80s.  As economic conditions deteriorate for those in the working class, many couples choose to split up for a variety of factors.  A divorce appraisal serves as a way for divorcing couples to split profits in a fair and equitable manner during court proceedings.  TCO Appraisals specializes in this service, adhering to the ethics set by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.  TCO Appraisals plays a critical role in the divorce process by generating a reliable, credible, and defensible valuation of real estate owned by the couple involved in a divorce. The appraisal can be used as a part of refinancing a property or in sales of real estate to satisfy court conditions.
