This is in CA and an interspousal transfer deed had been signed as per the suggestion of the lender though the property hadn't really been in both our names. I as the surviving spouse would like to know whether or not I can possibly file a spousal property petition. Though I was told I couldnt.

Interesting! And I believe I get the right picture of what you're asking though there are a few things you need to specify. Like when exactly was the interspousal transfer grant deed signed? Even then, given your situation right now you can't really transfer the property in your name, at least not that easily. Most likely you'll have to go ahead and open a probate proceeding and that too assuming that the property was put in both the names and not a single one.
