From what you have written it is possible that if the real property that your soon to be spouse acquired overseas during your marriage was acquired with marital funds then the court based upon proper evidence could rule that you have a percentage of net equity in terms of a dollar amount in it. I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney to discuss your situation, goals and how to go about it.
