Legal Question in Family Law in California

I married a man who is incarcerated about two years ago. I purchased a house 7 months ago and he signed a quit claim deed. I want to divorce him and I was wondering if he has any claim of ownership to my home?

Unless you used money earned during the marriage as monies towards the downpayment, it seems unlikely he has any claim. Best to get a court order confirming the house is awarded to you as your separate property.

The community may have acquired an interest in the property to the extent that your earnings during marriage reduced any principal secured by the note used to purchase the property.
