Spousal support orders end on the death of the payor, unless they specifically state that the support is binding on the debtor's estate. Lippolt v Lippolt Estate, 2015 ABQB 118 at para 92 held that a separation agreement setting out spousal support can bind the estate as long as there's an enurement clause though. Support might even still be payable if the recipient dies, which is absurd.
