You need to hire a Divorce lawyer, who can take all your information and go over everything with you. You don't automatically get half of everything he owns--the Divorce Court will look to divide the marital assets (acquired while you were married) equally.
Your question cannot really be answered here. You need to consult with an attorney and discuss you situation in detail.
I agree with Mr. Ertle. Marital property, by the way, includes all property except gifts and inheritances that were received by either one of you from the time that the 2 of you married until the "end of the marriage." The court has the discretion to define the "end of the marriage" in different ways. Sometimes a court will define it as when the parties separated. Other times, the court might decide that the end of the marriage is when one of the parties files for divorce. Another option might be to define the end of the marriage when the trial is heard in court.
