A: I'm very sorry for your loss, and the way it was further compounded by the handling of this matter. It looks like the person who could best help you clear things up before they get further out of hand with your father's property being improperly distributed to strangers would be a Texas Probate or Estate Planning attorney. You posted under the Personal Injury category, but if by your father's paperwork you mean a will or a trust, that is something a probate/estate attorney should advise you about. There is a section for finding a Texas attorney in those categories here (under Find-a-Lawyer), or you could look for an attorney on your own, or you could repost your question in those categories. Whatever you decide to do, move quickly, so that you don't find yourself in the position of fighting to get back property your father would have wanted to go to you. Good luck
