If you want to solve the problem you will need to hire a probate attorney who can take the necessary action to help clear title to your husband's assets and obtain a new division order for his interest. Who inherits his interest depends on whether he had a Will or whether he died intestate and if that is the case what was his family situation and whether property was separate or community.

So you will need to provide them copies of probate and/or administration, or heirship affidavits. If you are still getting the runaround after sending your request, you may need to get an oil & gas attorney involved to assist you.
