Normally ownership is demonstrated by the name on the deed. You can try to challenge the ownership by showing the house was purchased as a joint venture between the two of you. You will need to show what it is you put into the home.
You will need to hire an attorney to help you with this. A judge could find that the money you put into the home is the equivalent of rent. If you have tax returns showing you deducted interest payments or other proof of ownership this will go a long way to show you are a co-owner.
