You are entitled to a fair/equitable division of all property that you and your husband accumulated during the marriage. Equitable means roughly 50/50 depending on many factors. All debt would need to be fairly divided between the two of you.

If you are in a community property state, those things acquired during the marriage (and not from pre-marital property or funds, and not given as a bequest or gift) would be subject to equal division in the event of a divorce. If one of you earns significantly less than the other and doesn't have present ability to earn an amount close to the other party's income, then the lower earning spouse may be entitled to spousal support for approximately 2.5 years, depending on several factors.
