So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.

It is possible. If both spouses agree that you should receive the house in the divorce, the house will be awarded to you. If you cannot agree, the house will be an asset that will be equitably divided by the court in the divorce proceeding
