Since it was her house before the marriage and you have no kids together, it may be a great choice to leave the house.
Do you have financial entanglements together, as in loans, bank accounts or credit cards? Get rid of these, then there is just the separation of assets. With a short term marriage, you both are entitled to a few things, such as increases in retirements while married, splitting cash, savings accounts, etc.
Your type of divorce is the rare type that sometimes can be done with minimal cost and only a few months time.
