Surviving children

I was wondering if anybody had experience with this problem. A couple divorced, the husband remarried. The divorce decree required that he carry life insurance with his minor children as beneficiaries. He passed away while living in a different state. Does anyone know how the mom should go about claiming the death benefit for the minor children?

If the mother knows who the insurance company is, that would be the place to start. I would call and ask them what documentation they would need. Never dealt with anything like this. My best to the kids, how sad for them.

Thank you.
