Good Evening,

I will try to best answer your question.

Marital property is determined by the date on which it was acquired not in whose name it is under. The key time frame is going to be was the house acquired between the date of marriage and the date of separation. If so it is marital property and will need to be included for division.

I hope this information and advice is helpful and I wish you the best of luck resolving this matter.
