Happily married couples often have a mutually beneficial and comprehensive estate plan. This usually includes wills that give some or all of a deceased's property to a surviving spouse; trusts that list a spouse as a beneficiary; insurance policies and IRAs with survivorship; and durable powers of attorney.
These documents all serve an important purpose, making sure that a surviving spouse is taken care of.
But what happens when that marriage is no longer happy? After divorce, will all these documents still be valid?
