This is an action in Superior Court. Each side of the case will need to hire experts to testify as to the value of the property. The court will make a decision as to the value. If the parties don't cooperate with the signing of documents, the court will appoint a commissioner for the purpose of selling the property and signing all required documents. It is an expensive and time consuming process. You would likely benefit from meeting with an attorney experienced in real estate matters to determine if the cost of the fight is financially practical or if other methods to determine value might lead to a quicker and less expensive option than a courtroom battle.
