Death of a Debtor or Creditor of Support or a Dependent Child
If there are support payments in arrears at the time of the debtor's death, a claim will be filed by the Minister against the debtor's succession. If the arrears claimed by the Minister are not paid, the Minister will take appropriate legal measures to recover the amounts.
If the creditor dies, the Minister:
- continues to collect any arrears accumulated as at the date of death;
- will remit any arrears to the creditor's succession.
