Should I Change My Will When I Get Divorced?
Wills can be cancelled or revoked. A divorce revokes a bequest given to the former spouse if the Will was in effect prior to a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage being entered by the Court. However, the entirety of the Will may not be revoked. Although any testamentary provision to a former spouse may be treated as if the former spouse previously deceased the testator, other portions of the Last Will and Testament may remain in full force and effect.
In order to file for a divorce in Illinois, one spouse must have been a resident of Illinois for 90 days, and the case must be filed in the county where either spouse lives.
