Since it has been served, you could suffer a default if you do not appear in Court. That sounds like a General Sessions Warrant, so the Rules of Civil Procedure do not apply. Hire an attorney to defend you on the merits as it appears you have been afforded your due process notice.
We got behind on our bills and was living in a Habitat for humanity home for right at 5 years. We managed to get caught up and it was a huge relief all that the attorney told us was to make sure to pay on time from now on.

My father and I are on a relative's deed, who since passed, as Joint Tenants with Rights of Survivorship. If we sell the property, is it required that the proceeds of the property sale be split amongst the co-tenants 50/50?
Usually both owners want to get paid. If you and your Father have another arrangement, that is your business. But if I represent the seller, there will be one check with both owners as payees. If you Father wants to convey his interest to you prior to the sale, then he can do so or vice versa.

Do not post those incriminating facts on a public forum, and do not discuss this with anyone. Hire a competent attorney to get it diverted, dismissed and expunged. You do not want a criminal conviction on your record.

This family member is on tourist visa and trying to stay in US... I did not sign anything and don't want them in my house. What should I do in this case? what statue applies? I am a US citizen and own house for 4 years.

Alex probably has a good claim of adverse possession. The tax statutes may help your friend. And she will probably need a very competent attorney to search the title and file an Action for Ejectment.
