In order to register your child support payments, you must send or bring the following documents to the Maintenance Enforcement Office (MEO):
- A completed Maintenance Enforcement Office Registration form. Registration forms are also available from the MEO in Regina, the Court of Queen's Bench, Legal Aid or your lawyer.
- A copy of a current support order or agreement. The agreement must first be filed with the Court of Queen's Bench, and then a stamped copy brought or sent to the MEO.
- If you are a recipient, you will be required to fill out an Affidavit of Arrears (a sworn document that reflects payments past due) once the file has been registered with the MEO.
Once your order or agreement has been registered, you will receive a letter that includes your account number and personal identification number (PIN). You will need to provide this information every time you contact the MEO.
The services offered by the MEO are free to recipients and payors. Some fees may be charged to payors to offset the costs of enforcement if enforcement action is necessary.
If you withdraw from the MEO, you can re-register at a later date. Either the recipient or the payor can apply to return to the maintenance enforcement program. Normally, only the registration form is required to reopen your file. However, if there is a new court order or agreement since you withdrew, a copy of these documents will be needed to apply.
