You have an attorney, yet you have been out of the house sine August, 2016 and your ex or is that stbx still has full access to all of your bank accounts? What you are talking about are called Watts credits and you can get them. However, it is at a judge's discretion and from what I have been told, they are not awarded too often, and only when you have been out of the house for a long long time, I don't recall them being predicated upon whether or not she ever worked.
Please do tell us more about your situation, as the more information you provide, the better we can help you:
1. How long married?
2. Are there any children?
Other than your question, what do you want to achieve? From what you have stated so far, I'm worried that you are going to be stuck for a long long time paying for that house with no way to get her out and move on with your life.
Deciding to go forward with a divorce is kind of like joining a brotherhood. However, it is a brotherhood that you really don't want to join.
