The Maintenance Enforcement Program is part of the Family Resolution Service which supports family well-being and healthy transitions by delivering family-centered services in collaboration with public, private and community partners. We help families resolve their issues in a safe, collaborative, fair, affordable and timely way. In Manitoba, court orders with support payments, Child Support Service decisions, family law arbitration awards, and some written agreements, can be enforced through the Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP). The Program is authorized under The Family Support Enforcement Act (proclaimed July 1, 2023) to receive and monitor payments, and take steps to collect missed payments (arrears).

Safety

It is important to feel safe and secure in relationships with others. Unexpected changes in a relationship can sometimes threaten a person and family’s emotional, mental, physical and financial safety, and wellbeing. Help is available for you and your loved ones.

What if I have safety concerns?

The Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP), as part of the Family Resolution Service, screens all families for intimate partner violence and family violence. Families can be referred to a Family Guide or community based supports who provides information and safety planning. Please visit the Family Law Manitoba’s Intimate Partner Violence webpage for more information.
