Don't take the advice of a bunch of random people on a message board. See a lawyer. This is way too important to mess around with.
And don't see just anyone. Go to someone who specializes in contested divorce. (A lawyer who says that he or she works in a zillion areas, plus divorce, is probably not someone you want. Go to a specialist--maybe someone who has expertise in divorce with sticky real estate problems.)
Seeing a lawyer doesn't mean you're committed to divorce, or that you're getting ready to attack your spouse. It just means you're educating yourself on what you could expect, in case you have to go through with a divorce.
After you meet with a lawyer (or two, or three--it always helps to have a second or third opinion), let us know how it goes. Good luck.
