This is a pretty simple process. You would do this by signing a Quit Claim Deed transferring title to her in her name as her sole and separate property. You would sign this Deed, have it witnessed and notarized, and then record it in the real property records of the city/county where the property is located. Let me know if you need a form for the Quit Claim Deed. Assets received by a gift do not count as community property; rather, such assets are the recipient's sole and separate property and are not divisible upon divorce. You just want to make sure that she doesn't add him to the title after it's gifted to her. If you think there might be a possibility of this, you might want to either transfer it to a trust for her benefit or wait until they divorce.
