Linda, the relationship between one of the contingent beneficiaries to the former spouse has no significance. This would still be dealt with as though the former spouse has no rights and the contingent beneficiaries take all. Mind you . . . nothing gets uglier than dividing up assets after a death. It may take litigation to make the former spouse give up the life insurance benefits paid to him or her.

I am wondering if you could tell me if we have the situation discussed here where the ex-spouse still remained as primary beneficiary, but who had been explicitly extinguished in the divorce agreement, if then the proceeds automatically go to the contingent beneficiaries or the estate? If the continengent, would it matter if one of the contingent beneficiaries is related to the ex-spouse? Thank you.

Thank you. I'm an Insurance Agent in Michigan and recently wondered about this exact topic. This article has certainly cleared up my confusion.
