I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you, but I believe I have information which you will find helpful.
An officer position in a corporation, profit or non profit, does not pass by probate. You would need to follow the corporation bylaws
in filling a vacancy on the board and officers.
Additionally, check the bylaws to see if they require a minimum number of directors. If the bylaws require three you will need to add someone.
With regard to the filing with the state of California, you may want to give them a call or check their website. It can take a month to turn around a filing, but if it were rejected you would have had it returned.
It is my privilege to assist you. Let me know if you need further information. I hope I have helped you beyond your expectations in the service I have provided to you. I am here for you.
