1st you obtained E.C. from sub- register office . From which you will able to known whether your father had made any registered document or not . If the property is in the name of your father then file suit for partition

Dear client,
First you verify your fathers property. If you have not available any documents of property then you apply the certified copies of land /building documents from your local subregister office .Then apply death certificate of your father and Legalheir certificate. After getting those documents you can file a partition suit through the help of an advocate and also as per the advice of the advocate. You didn't try any type of forcefully activities that may be creat problem for you.

You have 1/7th share in your father's house as equal as your mother and siblings, but as she is a women and widow mother she has more right to live in that house than you,
To get a share you can file a partition suit in the civil court.
