Yes, unfortunately that is correct. If you file a First Amended Complaint, you need to re-serve all defendants who haven't yet been dismissed. So that means any defaulted defendants now have a chance to file an Answer to the First Amended Complaint.
You are better off filing a separate lawsuit for fraudulent transfer/conveyance, and letting the daughter defendant file a Notice of Related Case and Motion to Consolidate.
