I am the mother of 2 children who's father passed away

i am the mother of 2 children who's father passed away yesterday unexpectedly. He is a resident of Alabama. He recently has been divorced on 8/17/16 in the state of OHIO. He was living alone, had a girlfriend, and had an apartment.The kids tried to get life insurance information from the HR department of his employer and they would not give them anything. The kids are his next of Kin. They then proceeded to get prudential's number, from the employer and made a death claim. They won't know anything for over a week, and only beneficiaries will know anything. Prudential would not give them the amount of the life insurance nor who the beneficiaries are.Their father is in a funeral home and they need to make decisions...how can they do this when they don't know who is the beneficiaries....and they have no money?The ex wife is on her way to claim stuff....there is a girlfriend there also....If the ex is still on his life insurance policy, does she still get his benefits? Or does the divorce kill that in the state of OHIO, even if the life ins and where he worked and lived was in Alabama?

I would like to ask Eli from Texas what he thinks of my response and if he would try to come up with another route or to expand on the idea of removing her as ttee, if there is a way without alerting the beneficiaries. Otherwise, please say I am dead in the water, or give me some hope and ideas with the restraining order effect. My wife just visited Midland Texas area....with her boyfriend last week. Left the house unattended with a bunch of homeless gangsters in my family home and additional gangsters invited after she turned the corner. Shit!
