Moving or Remarrying
If you or the other parent move from Saskatchewan you still need to make your support payments, as the province has reciprocal (two-way) enforcement agreements with all Canadian provinces and territories, the United States and many other countries.
If you remarry and/or have other children, you still have an obligation to support all of your children.
The Age of Majority in Saskatchewan
The age of majority in Saskatchewan is 18. In other provinces, the age of majority may be different.
Whether the child support order or agreement is under the provincial law, The Family Maintenance Act, 1997, or under the federal law, the Divorce Act, the obligation to pay support may continue beyond the child's 18th birthday if that person is:
- under the recipient's charge; and
- unable, by reason of illness, disability, pursuit of reasonable education or other cause to:
- withdraw from the recipient's charge; or
- obtain the necessaries of life.
In either situation, as long as adequate proof of the ongoing dependency is provided to the Maintenance Enforcement Office, they will continue to collect the child support.
