I divorced my ex-wife 2.5 years ago and we recently jointly

Customer Question

I divorced my ex-wife 2.5 years ago and we recently jointly revised our consent order so that I took full title on a-yet-to-be-sold shared property and under the section. return the 'Maintenance for respondent' was extended so that I continued payments for a further 2 years.
She recently died. What is the position respect to my obligations to her estate, for maintenance that has yet to be paid to her. Obviously in the agreement these two items notionally offset each other in value though it was not a payment plan for the property but very specifically and extension of maintenance beyond the original end date. Thank you!
