The Act defines the term child and children, for the purposes of analyzing eligibility for year's support, to mean any child entitled to inherit if his or her parent dies intestate. The Act thus included illegitimate children as those who have a right to year's support, making the definition of child with respect to year's support consistent with that of Georgia's intestacy law.
