I have yet to read a contract where there is a time limitation on placing a claim. You just need proper paperwork, death claim and death certificate.

In the state of Georgia if a spouse receives life insurance benefits is the surviving spouse responsible for the deceased spouse debt if surviving spouse's name is not on any of the debt owed?

In Georgia, as in most states, life insurance proceeds to a named beneficiary become the property of the beneficiary and are therefore not accessible to the creditors of the decedent. Of course, this does not apply to joint debt between the spouses or any debt solely in the name of the surviving spouse. In short, if the surviving spouse's name is not on the debt of the decedent, the surviving spouse has no legal obligation to pay such debt.

Can you sue your spouse for child support they were not entitled to?

It appears the question is: "Can you sue a spouse (or former spouse) for child support that is overpaid, and to which the receiving spouse was not entitled to receive?" The short answer is "Yes". The longer answer is that over payments of child support are subject to being recaptured by the paying spouse or former spouse so long as the demand for payment and suit to recover the payments is brought within the applicable statute of limitations for suit upon a debt. In Texas, for example, there are two statutes of limitations on debts - a two year statute for oral debts or debts for injuries (such as fraud), and a four year statute for written debts or debts from a contract. In this case, is is assumed that the overpaid child support arises from following a separation order (a contract in Texas) or a court support order (either a contract or a written debt), and the four year statute of limitations should apply. The final answer is - make sure that what you are demanding for payment is worth the trouble and hassle of a lawsuit. It is pretty silly to sue someone for a few hundred bucks when the attorney's fees will surely eat that up completely, plus all the bad blood the lawsuit will spill over your already torn up family may make you the total bad guy. However, if the overpayment is substantial - gung ho!
