Yes, property owned by a married person is PRESUMED to be community property, but can be proven to be separate property. Thus, if you prove the property is separate property, it can be exempted from seizure or lien for a debt of the other spouse. Separate property means it is not counted as her property and as such cannot be used to satisfy her separate debt.
