Handling of Support-Payment Files
A judgment awarding support is first registered with the Ministère de la Justice. The courthouse then sends us a copy of the judgment and we proceed with collecting the support. The following is an overview of how we handle support files:
|1. Receive the judgment||We make sure the copy of the judgment is complete, so that the terms of support are complied with.|
|2. Prepare the file||We check and update the information in the file.|
|3. Assign the file||We assign the file to a Revenu Québec employee who will contact the debtor of support and the creditor of support within a few days.|
|4. Determine the collection procedure|
If the debtor is a salaried employee, we send a deduction notice to his or her employer. In this way, regular support payments and any arrears will be deducted directly from the debtor's pay.
If the debtor is not a salaried employee, we send the debtor a payment order. The order requires the debtor to make the regular support payments and to pay any arrears.
|5. Collect the amounts|
In the case of a deduction notice, the employer remits the amount to us.
In the case of a payment order, the debtor makes payments directly to us.
|6. Pay the support||We pay the support amounts to the creditor by cheque or direct deposit, on the 1st and the 16th of each month.|
Use the Register for Direct Deposit of Support Payments online service to request that we deposit your support payments directly into your personal bank account.
