Is CA 540NR correct form for California tax return for my situation?

I am resident alien for tax purposes and, since, me and my spouse are filing jointly, we are opting her to be considered as a resident alien as well (even though she would otherwise be considered non-resident alien). I was resident of CA and my spouse was a part year resident of CA for the year 2019.

 

Turbo tax generated 1040 for federal taxes which looks correct, however, it generated 540NR for California state tax return. Is 540NR the correct form for our situation to file California tax return?

Yes, for California,  the 540NR nonresident return is required when a resident spouse and a nonresident spouse wish to file a joint return.
