You can file a “pendente lite” motion seeking support including, where applicable, alimony and child support.

Sure. Child support is a right belonging to the child and can’t be abrogated by virtue of previous filings
My mother would like to give me my late grandmother's house. The estate is still under probate, my mother is the executor and sole named beneficiary. Can she do this as part of the estate, so that it is not subject to gift tax?
