If I have been diviorced with no children and the marriage was less than 10 years AND there was never a will or trust put together, do I need to have the information pertaining to my past marriage and divorce in my estate planning for individual?
Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my reply.

Not really. The ex is automatically cut off from one's estate and cannot claim anything. It does not hurt to mention that the ex gets nothing (if this is what one wishes), but it would be this way automatically, anyhow, so doing so would be redundant.
