Hi, thank you for your question. The spousal maintenance should have been made by a court - do you not have the court order? Spousal maintenance ends upon your death. There are also other trigger events that end spousal maintenance which should be outlined in your court order - such things as if your ex-wife remarries or cohabits with another partner for a certain period of time (but you will need to check the order to ensure that these triggers are included).Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful. I will not be credited with answering this question without a positive rating. Thank you
