Can my wife get half of the equity in our house when we divorce if she hasn't put one penny into paying for it?

Question Details: Our house appraised for $120,000 and I have a line of credit on it for $30,000. Her name is not on the line of credit. I only have about 3 more months to pay the house off. We are getting a divorce and I'm worried that she can get half of the remaining equity that is not tied up on the loan or possibly even get half of that amount also.
