The Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP) is authorized by The Family Maintenance Act to administer the spousal and child support obligations under the terms of a Court Order or Agreement. Once an Order or Agreement has been registered with the Program, maintenance payments that the Payor/Debtor would normally remit directly to the Payee/Creditor must be sent to the Program. The Program processes the payment, maintains an accounting record of the payment(s) and forwards the payment to the payee/creditor.

The Maintenance Enforcement Program is set up to monitor and enforce Court Orders and Separation Agreements requiring payment of maintenance support to ensure the well-being of children and other dependents.

The Payee/Creditor is the person receiving the support payments. The Payor/Debtor is the person paying the support.
