Nova Scotia Maintenance Enforcement Program

Important Notice for Clients of the Maintenance Enforcement Program:
We know families enrolled in the Maintenance Enforcement Program rely on us and we want to be sure that the program is doing everything it can to ensure payments are being received. That's why we are reviewing the program - its policies, practices and ability to deliver services that families need. We want to hear from you. If you would like to provide your feedback, please complete an online survey at the following link:

The Maintenance Enforcement Program collects court-ordered spousal and child support payments, known as maintenance.

The payor (the person required to provide support) sends payments to the program. The program forwards funds to the recipient (the person who receives the support).

In the cases where payments are not up-to-date, the Maintenance Enforcement Program can take action to enforce payment.
