You may lose the right to occupancy of the home but you do not lose your 'rights' to it. Don't represent yourself in a divorce.

No. Your moving out of the house does not effect whether the house is a marital asset.
You will not lose your economic rights in your home if you leave your home while you are obtaining a divorce. If you move to another home or residence, a court could grant your spouse the right to exclusive occupancy of the home while the action for divorce is pending. If you have children residing in the home and you leave, your departure could impact a final custody determination.
