Have you been to court against the parents yet?
That makes it slightly easier then. You're learning an important lesson in that forms aren't always a good idea. The court systems do the participants a disservice by providing forms without explaining what the law is behind them, what each section is for, etc.
However, in your case since the daughter is an occupant she would have to be added to the lawsuit and then served as well. You can do this by taking the petition you originally used, labelling it First Amended and then adding the daughter's information in and explaining that the documents is being amended because you have been informed that the daughter is living there and this is a necessary party. Then you go through the same process as far as filing and service. I assume that the other people you sued haven't file an answer yet so just have everyone re-served and then file the return with the clerk of court.
That takes care of all of your issues.
