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 Debtor/Payor would normally remit directly to the Creditor/Payee 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 Creditor/Payee is the person receiving the support payments. The Debtor/Payor is the person paying the support.
