The only binding form of post mortem "agreement" for distribution would be a will or a trust that addresses the property in question. Another way might be to include the "surviving siblings" as joint tenants in the deed with reservation of a life estate for the primary occupant (soon to become the decedent of your question), and addressing mineral rights in any specific way you want.

In New York does an entire estate always pass to the surviving spouse or can a will specify that it be split among the spouse and children?

1 Check with an atty Hopefully the decedent had a valid will 2 I was told by an atty for my fathers estate that the surviving spouse cannot be excluded from an estate however children can .Some parts of a persons estate will automatically go to the surviving spouse. It all depends on what in in their estate. Real Property , cash insurance stocks bonds etc , and each item is dealt with separately by law in NYS -I was also told that no matter what the will says if all heirs agree on a different settlement and petition the court for such agreement , the court will agree to the amended settlement.For example if there is a surviving spouse and 3 children and one child does not want their share of their inheritance for any reason (say they don't need/want the money for example) they can give their share to the other siblings and the surviving spouse to be shared . If the spouse and siblings agree they can all petition the court and the court will allow the declining child's share to be split up

When parents divorce and the father dies leaving no will who is heir to the estate?

The best way to find out for sure is to check the intestacy statutes in your state, and/or consult an estate attorney. Many (if not most) states give divorced spouses no legal rights to the estate of the decedent spouse, whether or not there is a will in place. The law would treat the surviving divorced spouse as though she had predeceased the deceased divorced spouse. If there is no will, then the intestacy statutes will determine who inherits the estate, but it will usually be the direct descendents (e.g. children and grandchildren) if any, followed by surviving parents, then surviving siblings, and so forth.
