Would spouse be entitled to % of equity or sale price in house?


Going through a divorce in MI. The house is 5 years old & doesn’t have much equity built. My name wasn’t on the house, however it was a marital purchase, which I’m told would still give me some kind of claim.

I’m wondering if I would have a claim only on a percentage of the equity or if I would have claim on a percentage of the sale price once it is sold? Thank you.
