A matrimonial home is ordinarily occupied by the both spouses as their family residence on the date of separation. If there is no cohabitation agreement or marriage contract and the home is solely owned by the wife, then she would claim the entire value, without a date of marriage deduction, and that entire value would enter the calculations as to her net family property. You do not need to file to a declaration unless there are concerns as to taxes, which there are not because it is solely owned by her, or that she may sell the property in which case you need to put potential third party purchasers on notice that you have an interest in the property.
