What happens with maintenance (aka alimony or spousal support) when one of the parties dies or remarries?

The Law Offices of John Schmidt & Associates PLLC works with clients on all family law matters including maintenance (aka alimony or spousal support).

The obligation to pay future maintenance (aka alimony or spousal support) is terminated by law upon the death of either party or the remarriage of the party receiving maintenance unless otherwise agreed in writing or expressly provided in the decree.


If you are in Kentucky, then I’d recommend that you call my office at 502-587-1950 or 502-509-1490 to schedule a consultation if you have an agreement, parenting schedule or court order to discuss your options.
