I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Divorce nullifies any part of the will that leaves property to the former spouse, names the former spouse as executor, or leaves property to a trust controlled by the former spouse unless the person signs something affirming the original will after the fact. Ohio Rev. Code, Section 2107.33. Any provisions in the will leaving money to someone else, such as children, remain valid and enforceable.
