Will the court notify her if I do get remarried or is it my responsibility to inform her?
The court will not monitor your marriage status. You will need to tell your ex-wife if you get married again. What will happen if you remarry, don't tell her and continue to accept payments, she will find out eventually and file a contempt action against you. In that lawsuit she will ask the court to order you repay any amounts made to you after you were married. In contempt action, it's possible you could be sent to jail as a coercion to pay up. It's in your best interests to let your ex-wife know if and when you get re-married.
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
Divorce court is where the divorce process takes place. The court may determine matters like alimony, child custody, and property division.
