Your right is in the value of the equity acquired during the marriage. If the home's equity has not increased, as many have not due to lower property values or increased mortgages, then there is nothing to distribute to you. You have not made clear whether your wife owned it before the marraige. Nor have you said whether you contributed money to the purchase of the home. Those would be important facts. Answering this question does not establish an attorney/client relationship.
