If you do not want to update your wills, you and your wife can sign a Declaration of Appointment of Guardian for your children in the event of your death or incapacity. This form will at least allow you to express your wishes as to who you want to care for your children if something happens to you.

If this is only a request for findings of fact for a child support order then you need to look at section 154.130 of the Texas Family Code.

You should try to show the Plaintiff that the property was sold and give them the information on the buyer so they can pursue them for the taxes but make sure you file an answer if you have not been able to get the Plaintiff to dismiss the lawsuit before the answer deadline.
There are strict deadlines, requirements and procedures that must be followed when filing an appeal. You will be expected to know and follow them if you represent yourself.
