Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Please ask the question. I am happy to continue with you.
In our first question, I believe you said it named the children as beneficiaries, not the ex wife. That is a completely different situation. I believe, under Minnesota law, a divorce has the effect of treating the ex spouse beneficiary of an insurance policy as if they predeceased the insured.
If an alternate beneficiary were not named then it would pay to the policy owner or their estate.
