Divorce Law is one of the fields of law that is extremely state specific but generally if both sides don't agree on how to dispose of or divide their property, then the court always has the right to make the decision for them. You need to talk to a local Divorce Law attorney. Call your local attorney's Bar Association and ask for a referral to a Domestic Relations or Divorce attorney near you. But act quickly because for every legal right you have, there is only a limited amount of time to actually file a lawsuit in court or your rights expire (it's called the statute of limitations), so don't waste your time getting to an attorney and finding out what your rights are.
