Your spouse probably can’t continue to hold a life insurance policy on you after your divorce in Queens.
Exceptions to holding a life insurance policy after divorce
Barring obligations like spousal maintenance or child support, which don’t seem to apply in your case, the insurance company itself will likely consider your spouse to lack an insurable interest following the divorce and cancel the policy.
If the policy has any monetary value, that will be subject to distribution during the divorce.
If your spouse has threatened to keep the policy so they can profit in the event of your death, don’t take those threats seriously.
An experienced Queens divorce attorney can help you understand the specifics of your situation and ensure that your rights are protected, and your ability to purchase a life insurance policy of your own is secure after your divorce.
