Prescribed Fees

The Act to facilitate the payment of support provides for fees in the following situations:

  • You receive a payment order pursuant to the Act and you fail to remit the amount owed within the prescribed period.
  • A notice of execution is issued against you for the first time, further to a payment order.
  • A negotiable instrument (such as a cheque) that you remitted is subsequently refused for insufficient funds by the financial institution on which it is drawn.

These fees are payable for each file in respect of which you commit an offence. They bear interest at the legal rate.
