My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Texas. Per Tx Fam Code 9.301, an ex-spouse is revoked as beneficiary of life insurance for the deceased unless it is stipulated in the divorce decree.
If not stipulated in divorce decree, does this still apply if the life insurance was purchased before the marriage?
If the policy was never updated to list the beneficiary's new status as a spouse? It was left as originally written?
