Family Maintenance Enforcement Program

The BC Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP) helps people receive or forward child/spousal support payments included in court orders and agreements. Staff can take action to get money from payors who fall behind.

Either the recipient or payor can enroll in the FMEP if:

  • they live in BC, and
  • have a support order or agreement made in Canada, the USA, or another country that has a reciprocal agreement with BC.

FMEP can help collect or track support orders or agreements even when the payor or the recipient lives outside of BC.

For more information or to register, see Family Maintenance Enforcement Program on the Ministry of Attorney General website and the FMEP website.
