What rights do my son and I have regarding his late father's litigation settlement if he remarried without divorcing me?

Question Details: I married 29 years ago and had a son a year later. The man I married passed away this year. While we never divorced, he remarried. My son received a limited power of attorney for asbestos litigation from this second "wife", asking him to appoint her as his attorney-in-fact and to have any funds distributed to the wife of his father and it names her as the wife. What options do we have?
