Legal Question in Family Law in California

I owned a house before my marriage. When we got married he signed a Quitclaim deed. Now, after 4 years we are divorcing and he wants to have a Moore/Marsden calculation to determine his portion of a community value. Doesn't the quitclaim deed negate his claim to an interest in the house?

The Moore/Marsden calculation is not a claim to an interest in the house. It is a claim for reimbursement of the community for community funds put into separate property. It is a confirmation, in a way, that he has no ownership interest in the house.
