I inherited fractional mineral rights in both Ward and Winkler Counties from my mother's estate.
What do I need to do to transfer them to my name?
I live in Colorado where Probate was filed. Do I also have to file probate in Texas? I have contacted Shell regarding the Division Order (they have the lease in Ward County); I am sending them a "request", but they asked about probate in Texas??
I am unsure if Chesapeake or Eland is holding the lease in Winkler County and not sure how to find out........any suggestions?
It has been nearly 2 years since mom passed that I have been intermittently dealing with this. I was hoping to close probate in Colorado as soon as I get these taken care of, but now not sure what to do.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
