u can file a civil suit against ur mother for the partition of property of ur deceased father.
exception case :
if in ur father bank account, ur mother has nominee then u can not claim the money.
if ur father in his life time made any will for any movable or immovable property in favour of ur mother then u can not file civil suit

but ur father died without any will then u can file for the right of equal share from ur mother.

for better suggestion u can contact me

If the property document is your father's name then try to settle the natter by way of partition deed otherwise you can file a partition suit before the court.
But without detail discussion proper consult is not possible.
