Best Answer

This varies from state to state, but most divorce decrees will include making the will void as it applies to the spouse in question. Consult the divorce decree and a probate attorney to find out what happens in your state. ==Additional Comments== In Massachusetts any provisions for a spouse expressed in a Will made prior to the divorce are automatically revoked by a divorce decree unless there is specific language also contained in the Will to contradict that operation of law. It's best to check your state statutes. Most states have adopted laws that provide that if there is a divorce, the gift to the wife and the appointment of her as executrix are automatically revoked unless the will says differently.
