Clients who have owed unpaid amounts of assistance and feel they do not have the means or ability to meet their court-imposed support obligations are urged to apply to the court or seek assistance from Family Justice Services (FJS) to amend their court order. FJS can provide information on how child support is calculated, and if both the payer and the beneficiary are willing to discuss the matter, the SJF mediators can help them reach an agreement and file a referral of agreement to the court. The FJS trial may take a few months before the child`s maintenance issues are resolved and a new court order is filed. However, it is usually faster than the time it takes for the case to be settled by the court. For more information about Family Justice Services, clients are invited to consult the following link: court.nl.ca/supreme/family/fjs.html contact their local FJS office. Marginal note:Applications for family provisions The Family Law Assistance Department of the Department of Justice Canada manages three programs: once a case is registered, the payer sends all assistance payments to the program. FMEP processes them and then sends them to the recipient. It tracks when payments are due, how and when payments are made. If a payer misses payments and the arrears add up, there are several steps the FMEP can take.
We will explain this shortly. To leave the program, the person who registered the assistance order or agreement with FMEP must send a written request.

Marginal note:Designation of provincial enforcement services Please note that Child Support`s recalculation service remains operational during the COVID-19 situation with reduced staff. On that date, all deadlines for the recalculation of assistance contracts and the submission of income information, as well as the filing of notices of objection, remain unchanged. If it is the recipient who has registered, he can resign at any time. If it is the payer who has registered, the recipient must accept the resignation of the payer from the program. The FMEP may issue a notice of seizure to any person or institution that owes money to the payer. Communication requires that funds be transferred to the recipient through the program.
