About the Program
The Family Maintenance Enforcement Program (FMEP) is a free service of the British Columbia Ministry of Attorney General. It collects over $200 million each year for 37,000 BC families.
We help families and children entitled to maintenance (child support and spousal support) under maintenance orders or agreements.
We receive payments from the person required to pay maintenance (the payor) and send the money to the person entitled to maintenance (the recipient).
In many cases, the payor makes payments voluntarily, but FMEP will take steps to collect the outstanding maintenance if necessary.
