But bear in mind that spouses who are not on title may nonetheless have a community property interest in the home.

If you do not want your spouses on title, your title/escrow officer will help you to arrange a spousal quitclaim and at the time of the refinance, record the new deed of trust and grant deed for each of you as "married woman as her sole and separate property" on the grant deed. Because California is a community property state, you must have your spouse sign paperwork to verify that they have no claim on the property.
ps: always consult your attorney for advice on how this will affect each of you and whether a change of title will trigger a transfer tax or reassessment.
