The Moneyologist: My father died with no will — can I stop my mother from inheriting his home?

Dear Moneyologist,

My father died last April in a motorcycle accident. It was very unexpected and overwhelming. He had no will, but was still married to my mom. The house was only in his name. I know that my mom was seeing a probate lawyer and there was supposed to be a court date where me and my siblings could either give up our rights so she can have all of the profit after selling the home or object and say we wanted our share since we live in California and it’s a community property state.
