From your description, it sounds like paternity
has never been established. With that assumption, pursuant to Louisiana's Statute §399 in such a situation where you had no notice of the child, retroactive child support
is not available to the mother
If you were to die intestate/without a will, once paternity has been established, the child would be entitled to share in your estate. However you would not be required to include the child in your will
Here is a link to Louisiana Statute §399for your review: http://www.legis.state.la.us/lss/lss.asp?doc=107887
