My husband and I signed prenup before the marriage to keep the income and debt incurred before/during the marriage separate. During the course of our marriage, I have been wanting to purchase a property and he strongly disagreed (he doesn't believe owning a property).
If I purchase a property using my own saving and credit, would a 'quitclaim deed' and the prenup be sufficient to prevent him from claiming any interest of the property?

Daxia, I was hoping that RE_Guy might notice your post, and chip in, as he holds a law degree, among his resume points.
Yours sounds to me, like an issue that needs to be advised by an attorney.
California IS a community property state, and as such, something as simple as a pre-nup, and a quit claim deed, might not be sufficient protection - to you - especially if the property becomes a primary residence, for the two of you.
