New Measures to Enhance Enforcement of Maintenance Orders

Topic(s): Marriage Journey


As of 19 September 2011, claiming maintenance owed to you or your children has been made easier.

In addition to the Family Court, you can now file a Complaint against the defaulter at the Maintenance Support Central. These agencies can assist you on the filing process and provide other required areas of social assistance.

The Courts have also been empowered to impose additional penalties or sanctions on defaulters. For more information, please refer to the brochures below.
