Do i have any right in this Apartment

Q: I married with my wife for 4 years and she want to divorce and evict me from her apartment.
She bought this apartment 4 years ago by her mom gift money during we married
Does this apartment is Property acquired during married?
Do i have any right in thi apartment?
What is going to happend if i don't want to divorce

A:David's Answer: If the apartment was purchased during the marriage, then it's presumptively marital property. It's then your wife's burden to prove it's her own separate property. Thus, it may turn on whether the Judge believes the money gifted was intended to only be for your wife, rather than a benefit to the marriage.
