The Will provision is not effectuive once the money has been received. Any financial resource that is controlled by the obligor may be applied to child support arrears.

I am a bit confused as to whether you want the money to go to child support arrears or don't want it to be used for child support arrears. In any event if you are wanting to see the money collected, the person who the money is owed to should contact a family law attorney experienced in child support collections to create a plan to collect this money. This person should not wait until the payor/obligor receives the money to contact someone. There needs to be a plan in place. Most attorneys, including myself offer free consultations.
This is a tricky question. Trusts can be set up such that the person has restricted access to the money, but it's not legally considered "their money". I know that sounds weird, but many trusts are set up that way for the express purpose of doing what it's doing (restricting the ability to force the money to be used for child support). I would consult a family law attorney in your area to review the documents and see if there is a way to breach the trust instrument and access the funds, but don't get your hopes up.
