Out of Province Orders
We have agreements with all Canadian provinces and territories, the United States and several other countries, allowing for another maintenance enforcement program to collect the maintenance payments.
If the recipient is here and the payor lives outside BC, we can enrol the maintenance order or agreement in the equivalent program where the payor lives. That program is then responsible for collecting the maintenance payments on our behalf.
If the payor is here and the recipient lives outside BC, the recipient should enrol in the maintenance enforcement program where he or she lives. That program will contact us about collecting the maintenance payments on their behalf.
A recipient can enrol directly with BC FMEP if the maintenance order or agreement is already filed in a BC court. If the order is not filed, in some circumstances FMEP may be able to help the recipient get it filed in BC. The advantage of enrolling in the program where the recipient lives is they will file the order in a BC court for the recipient as part of their enrolment process.
