See Government Code section 82.0651.

Tammy Lyn Wincott's answer The name a tax office has for the owner of property is not controlling as to who "actually" owns the property. An owner of real property is determined in the Deed records where the property is located.
Robert W. Leonard Jr.'s answer You are looking at significant litigation if the parties are not in agreement. In order to advise you, your attorney will have to review all of the documents. Time is of the essence; contact a local probate attorney right away.

You should have this discussion with your attorney, but from what you describe, no misconduct has occurred. Good luck.
Grant St Julian III's answer What is your goal? Your chances of overturning a 20 year old conviction are slim, and I assume the $92,000 owed is from a civil suit arising out of the same incident. The question for the criminal case is whether you operated a motor vehicle while intoxicated, was there an assault, and are you liable for the damages. I do not know the particular facts, but the first questions anyone would ask is: why are you just now asking these questions? Call your attorney.
Grant St Julian III's answer You may contact the census bureau, discover the supervisor of the agent in question and lodge your complaint with the agency. No criminal offense, however, has taken place from what you describe.
The Texas State Bar has a bunch of rules for attorneys. Many of them are complicated, obscure, or even counter intuitive.

If you want to be sure your parental rights are protected, contact an attorney right away. This is not a matter you should even think about handling yourself.
Terry Lynn Garrett's answer If your father has been declared legally incapacitated (in some states called legally incompetent), it has been by a judge.
