You can absolution demand that his estate pay the past due child support. But not from GA. You will need to hire a lawyer in FL who can bring this to the probate court (if she is refusing to pay as required)The same lawyer can help you contest the will. If you can demonstrate he was not of "sound mind" that would allow the court to void the will, and would make all of his children beneficiaries of his estate.As for the settlement? That depends on WHO filed the claim to reach the settlement. IF the claim was filed on behalf of the estate, and if you can get the will tossed out? That would allow his children to benefit from the settlement.
But if the claim was filed by his current spouse (widow)? Then the children and estate would have no right to a settlement.
