It should be a marital asset and subject to an equitable distribution regardless of how it is owned, if it was purchased during the marriage.The time you were married will be one of the factors examined when you go forward in your divorce.

This answer is offered for informational purposes only. It is not offered as, and does not constitute, legal advice. Laws vary widely from state to state. You should rely only on the advice given to you during a personal consultation by a local attorney who is thoroughly familiar with state laws and the area of practice in which your concern lies.

Consult with an attorney. Assuming that the house was not purchased from her separate property, then in general, community property is all property acquired or created during the marraieg by either spouse, with each spouse sharing an undivided one-half interest in the property.

Good luck,
