Thank you for that additional information.
So for periodic alimony, normally the language of the decree is such that the alimony will terminate upon remarriage/death of the other person. However, a party may petition the court for a modification of the alimony if there is a substantial change in circumstance, such as a drastic increase or decrease in income.
As for the failure to remove one's name from the mortgage, presumably from a refi, if the other party fails to do that, the innocent party can bring a motion to compel. If they still refuse, there are a couple of things:
1. contempt-provided that a refinance is financially possible, as a contempt citation requires a knowing and Willful violation of a court order (so if one is unable to get refinancing they won't be held in contempt)
2. a court order to sell the house to a third party so that the names are ***** ***** the mortgage.
