Dont forget to get a new Will, Power of Attorney (POA) and Advance Medical Directive during your divorce process or immediately thereafter. Although the NJ divorce process might automatically revoke certain important legal documents such as an Advance Medical Directive under NJSA 26:2H-53, you still need to identify new individuals to carry out your important intentions. It is also the case that a Power of Attorney is not automatically revoked in the State of New Jersey by virtue of a divorce case. Imagine a situation where you become incapacitated and your ex-spouse is in control of your financial affairs. This sounds crazy or unlikely but it could happen unless a new Power of Attorney is prepared.
