My husband got married in New York and divorced in New Jersey. He had prepared a will with his ex-wife, and we are now going to prepare one of our own. What I’m confused about, whether the previous will with his ex is still legal and binding, or now invalid because of the divorce.

Well, for PA residents, a Will is taken as though the divorced spouse had predeceased the Testator (i.e. the person who wrote the Will). Now, as you  are going to prepare a new will, you need not to be concerned. As soon as the new will takes shape, the old document will be revoked.
