Legally you may not be able to sell the house as your daughter needs a roof over her head and that is given priority by the courts. If there is enough equity to buy two smaller properties then you may be able to force your wife to sell, but this is not always the case. If selling would make them homeless then a court may rule that you can't get any equity out of the house until your daughter is grown up.
