New Crown Agency now responsible for FMEP

The BC government has established a new Crown Agency, the BC Family Maintenance Agency. Starting on November 1st, the new Agency will be responsible for delivering the FMEP. There will be no change to the current services delivered to families. Establishing a new dedicated agency with closer ties to government will offer opportunities to enhance the FMEP and to add new services for families in the future. We look forward to continuing to serve the families of BC in the new Agency.

Update – Driver’s Licence Cancellation now in effect

The law allowing FMEP to direct ICBC to cancel a payor’s driver’s licence where the arrears are over $3000 came into effect in April. This new action has immediate consequences for a payor who is not paying maintenance. To avoid this action the payor is required to pay the arrears or contact us to work out a voluntary payment arrangement to pay the arrears.

If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for direct deposit in order to receive your maintenance payments from FMEP.


If you aren’t already doing so, you will need to send your payments electronically to FMEP, using either:


If you aren’t already doing so, you will need send payments through your financial institution using online banking for a Notice of Attachment.

If you still want to send your payments by cheque, payments can be couriered (prepaid only) to FMEP Payment Services.

Reciprocating Jurisdictions

FMEP will work with the other reciprocating jurisdictions in Canada and internationally to ensure recipients continue to receive their payments during a postal disruption.
