Methods of Valuation in Matrimonial Appraisals
Matthew C. Kesten and Edward Lewand write that typically, attorneys will seek a Fair Market Value appraisal of property. However, in a matrimonial situation, the FMV may differ depending on the nature of the assignment, the type of property being appraised, and the market in which the property might be sold. Marketable Cash Value is often the correct valuation method for matrimonial disputes.
