Alimony payments set to end per divorce agreement 12/22

My alimony payments to my ex-wife are set to end per my divorce agreement on 12/22 (with no chance of renewal). What steps should I take when the end date arrives? Do I need to notify the court or file papers? Or do I just stop payments to my ex-wife when the end date arrives?

If your separation agreement or court order states that alimony terminates upon the completion of the alimony term, then there is nothing you need to do unless otherwise stated in your separation agreement or court order. You can simply stop making the payments after the last one.
