Getting divorce should not be a problem citing separation. Minimum it might take 3 months to maximum a year.

Securing divorce should not be a problem.

There is no uniform civil code as of now in existence in the country. Personal law of every religion is different.
To answer your question, you do nave any right over the assets of your husband unless he agrees to give you a share therein. It might take up to 2 years to obtain divorce if he elects to contest your divorce case.
