Can my wife demand half of the mineral rights if there is a mortgage lien on the property? Posted on July 24, 2011

I have agreed to assume the mortgage on our house and land and pay my wife her portion of the equity value. We also have a gas lease on the property that is producing a small monthly income. She is demanding half of the mineral rights in the divorce. Can she take half of the mineral rights if there is a mortgage lien on the property?
