Generally, yes. A person must be careful to change the name of the beneficiary on their life insurance after a divorce of death of the named beneficiary. You should consult with the attorney who represented the decedent in the divorce to determine the law in your state and whether the divorce decree extinguished the ex-spouse as the beneficiary.

If I'm the beneficiary of life insurance policies of my brother and who named me as beneficiary prior to his marriage and during his marriage do I still have legal rights to this life insurance?

You will receive the death benefit unless your brother has changed the beneficiary. Regardless of marriage, divorce, life changes, etc; unless the insured contacts their insurance company and changes their beneficiary, the money will go to the specified beneficiary; FYI- your brother would not be required to notify you as current (or ex) beneficiary if he changed the policy. Also, many life insurance policies have a primary and a successor beneficiary; the successor is the person who would receive the benefit if something were to happen to both the insured and the primary beneficiary.
