Divorce, Probate and Community Property

Dear Len & Rosie,

My husband died two months before our divorce was completed. Before his death, he wrote a will naming his divorce lawyer as his executor and his children as the beneficiaries. I fear this lawyer is biased and will not execute the will in a fair manner. I appeared in court and the judge told me to file a written objection.

I am concerned about my children's rights because the will leaves everything to his children, and nothing to mine. There is also an insurance policy that name me and both of our children as beneficiaries, but the will leaves this policy to his children.
