Carlotta,Thank you for your follow-up. Now I understand. It does not hurt to first try to get this resolved via the state agency. My fear and my concern that even with your father making a case for this, the agency may claim it has no power to formally change ownership on title absent a clear mistake. In that case going to court would be a requirement. So far in this case it would be wiser to try to resolve it without counsel but be prepared to hire one since I would place little faith in the bureaucracy.Hope that clarifies!
