Anyone paying support through the Maintenance Enforcement Program can make payment in any of the following forms:
- electronic transfer
- pre-authorized debit from a financial institution
- money order or bank draft
- cheque issued by the court, the employer of the paying person, or a financial institution
The Maintenance Enforcement Program does not accept payment in the form of a personal cheque. Payments must be made through the program. A record of the date and amount of the payment will be entered in the program’s computer. It is extremely important for both parties to have all payments made through the program, so an accurate record of payments can be kept. The computer is designed to automatically flag missing payments (default), so enforcement action can be taken.
