Question #149

My father passed away on Oct 28, 2005. He had not lived with his second wife for almost 12 years before he passed; My dad was sick, gave me power of attorney, and told me what he wanted to do with the money from his life insurance policy (which was to distribute it amongst myself and my three other siblings.) After his death, I found out that I was not on the life insurance policy as a beneficiary, but he never removed his second wife from the policy. After that much time apart, are they considered divorced due to abandonment? If they are divorced, what do I have to do to stop her from getting the money?
