If I made a will and testament and what happen if I got divorced?

If I get a divorce then my will and testament get revoked??


Once the divorce is finalized, any provision leaving assets to your ex would be null and void.  Filing for the divorce is not enough to disinherit your soon to be ex.  It would be best to be proactive and execute a new will to disinherit your spouse.  The spouse would still have a spousal right to some of the assets if you should die during the divorce process, but not to all of them.
