The Estate's information at the Master of the High Court is open to the public. Go to the Master's office in the area where your ex lived at the time of his divorce, by quoting the date of his death or his identity number will enable you to have sight of the file at the Master's office. The Will will also be in the file, so to the Distribution Account. In the account you will be able to see who received benefits from the estate. The children certainly have a claim against the estate for maintenance of in the event that a trust was created in terms of the Will then surely as beneficiaries they will have a right for maintenance and increases etc. Best is to consult an attorney to assist you.
