Your circumstances need to be reviewed by an attorney. Generally, you may be entitled to one half of what was contributed during the marriage. A rough guestimate is one-half of $158,000, about $79,000. It will be worth it to hire a family attorney in your area to pursue this.

I am assuming that he passed away because you posted this in Estate Planning. If he has passed away you would be entitle to all of the 401K unless you signed a prenuptial agreement or signed a beneficiary change designation. If you are getting a divorce, you are generally entitle dot have of the increase during the marriage but should talk with a Family law attorney about this.
