I am an adult child from my fathers first marriage and need to know what legal rights I have over my step-mom?

Your step mother can't sign your father's name to a new will. Your father has to sign the will himself, in the presence of two witnesses (who cannot be beneficiaries of the will). What you are going to have to do is talk to a probate attorney and retain him/her to contest the will when it is probated.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
