Hello,

The answer is, "no." A person has no further rights in the future estate of their former spouse -- unless the will or trust was written to expressly include the ex-spouse in the ex-in-laws' estate plan.

I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer -- otherwise, I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf.

Thanks again for using Justanswer!
