The house you are currently living in would most likely not be considered part of the marital estate.  The home was purchased by your husband and his ex-wife therefore the home is part of their marital estate.  As stated, you may have an interest in the home if you and your husband expended a lot of mutual funds for the home’s improvement, or if your marriage has no other assets.  It may be wise to consult a divorce attorney to educate you on all of your options and the best way to proceed.
