Getting Started with the Program

When enrolment is complete, the recipient and payor receive Notices of Filing confirming the maintenance order or agreement is now enrolled in FMEP. The Notices:

  • set out the amount of maintenance to be paid according to the maintenance order or agreement, including any arrears
  • instruct the payor to send all future maintenance payments to FMEP
  • remind the recipient to let us know if any payments are received directly from the payor
  • provide the recipient and payor with the case number and their personal identification numbers (PIN)

Along with the Notices, both the payor and recipient receive a booklet explaining all aspects of FMEP:
