Does it matter that we got married in another state but bought property here?

California divorce law makes no distinction regarding where a person is married. The key is whether at the time of divorce, the State of California can claim jurisdiction over the marriage and the property. In other words, you must ask if you are domiciled in California. If you are, then the property you acquire while married will be considered “quasi-community property” unless you can show that the property was purchased with your separate property funds. The distinction between community and quasi-community property is academic because they are both treated alike under community property law for the purposes of marriage and divorce.
