If I quit deeded my home to my wife, if I were to file for divorce will I still be able to half the value of the home?

I quit deeded the home as to protect my personal assets from any litigation that may have arisen out of being in business for myself.

Unfortunately, you would not have a claim to the home because a quitclaim deed means that you have given up your entire right, title and interest in the home to your wife.

Without the quitclaim deed, you would have had a claim to the home.
