Alberta has a maintenance enforcement program designed to help recipients of support get the payments that they are due.

in Alberta, the maintenance enforcement program (MEP) helps individuals receive payments as per a court-ordered support agreement or maintenance agreement.

The MEP is an initiative of the Alberta government and covers:

It is not uncommon for former spouses or partners to intentionally or unintentionally fail to follow the demands of a court-ordered support agreement.

The MEP can help you legally collect arrears, but there is some confusion about how this program works, who is eligible for assistance, and what a payor can do if they disagree with the enforcement.

To receive assistance from the MEP you first need to register with the program. There are three requirements to register:

Many people need legal assistance with the registration process and the paperwork required. Spectrum Family Law in Calgary and Edmonton can help you get enrolled in the program.

Once you have obtained the court order and registered for the maintenance enforcement program in Alberta, you will need to meet certain obligations to receive assistance. This includes:

The obligations for the paying spouse are as follows:

The program has the power to enforce the debt by taking actions such as demanding to see the financial statements of the payer, transferring money from salary or bank accounts, suspending the payer’s driver’s license or even asking the court to send the payor to jail as a last resort.

In this way, the MEP helps support recipients receive what they are due. It is not a legal advice service and will not provide legal representation to clients or help you with changing a court order.

If you are having difficulty collecting maintenance payments from the other parent, you may be eligible to enroll in the Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP). The program is designed to help custodial parents receive the child support payments that they are owed.

To enroll in MEP, you will need to fill out an application and provide proof of your child. You may also need to provide proof of your income and the other parent’s income. Once you have enrolled in MEP, the program will take over the collection of maintenance payments from the other parent.

If you are already receiving child support through another government program, such as the Canada Child Benefit, you can still enroll in MEP. However, the other program will continue to collect the payments and MEP will only be used if the other parent falls behind in their payments.

When creating a maintenance agreement, keep in mind:

You cannot file a maintenance agreement if any of these conditions apply:

you are receiving:

You can file a maintenance agreement if the above conditions do not apply to you. We recommend a lawyer helps you with this process:

There is no fee to register with MEP for the first time, BUT there is a $205 re-registration fee if they want to re-open a closed case, or you’re a recipient who asks us to re-open a filed that has been closed due to lack of cooperation.

If you are having difficulties in applying for the maintenance enforcement program, do not worry. This process can be a bit convoluted for some based on their own, personal circumstances. You can have a third party act on your behalf with MEP. To arrange this, fill out the Client Authorization of Third Party form and contact Spectrum Family Law to apply for the Maintenance Enforcement Program today.

The support obligations for a payor spouse can be severe. Sometimes, circumstances change and the original court order no longer fairly reflects the situation. It can become impossible for the payor to pay what is due.

In this situation, you can apply for a stay of support enforcement. This is a temporary suspension of enforcement of the financial support order by the local support enforcement agency.

You may be eligible for a stay of support enforcement in the following circumstances:

The local enforcement agency will not automatically stop enforcing an order issued by the court even if there are valid grounds for a stay of enforcement.

The payor must apply to the court for a stay of enforcement of the order.

According to the Maintenance Enforcement Act, you may apply to the court for a stay for a period of up to nine months if:

Whether you are the payor or recipient of support in Alberta, the maintenance enforcement may impact you.

If you are owed money by your ex and have not yet filed an order with the program, a lawyer from Spectrum Family Law can help you register.

If you are a payor with grounds to appeal enforcement, we can help you follow up and apply for a stay.

ROSEMONT, Ill. (May 31, 2022) — Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. It is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. As Skin Cancer Awareness Month continues, it’s important to check your skin regularly, and if you notice a spot on your skin that is different from others or that changes, itches, or bleeds, make an appointment to see a board-certified dermatologist.

If you notice anything suspicious on your skin, your dermatologist will examine it and may perform a skin biopsy. For many skin diseases and conditions — including skin cancer and some rashes — a skin biopsy is the best way to confirm the diagnosis. A skin biopsy can be done during an office visit with your dermatologist using local anesthesia to numb the area. During a skin biopsy, your dermatologist removes a small amount of skin, which will be looked at under a microscope to make a diagnosis.

“Your dermatologist will treat the small wound from the skin biopsy during your visit,” said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Rajiv Nijhawan, MD, FAAD. “Continuing to care for your wound once you get home is important because it will help it heal, reduce scarring, and decrease chances of infection.”

To care for a wound from a skin biopsy, Dr. Nijhawan recommends the following six tips:

Protect your wound from the sun to reduce scarring. Once your wound has healed, protect it from the sun by seeking shade, covering it with sun-protective clothing, and applying a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. For more effective sun protection, select clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) number on the label.

“If you have any signs of infection such as worsening pain, increased swelling, warmth, or fever, contact your dermatologist,” said Dr. Nijhawan. “If you have any questions about a skin condition, make an appointment to see a board-certified dermatologist.”

These tips are demonstrated in “6 Skin Biopsy Wound Care Tips from Dermatologists,” a video posted to the AAD website and YouTube channel. This video is part of the AAD’s “Video of the Month” series, which offers tips people can use to properly care for their skin, hair and nails.

What should i do if my skin biopsy is infected?



Keyboard shortcuts are keys or a combination of keys you can press on your keyboard to perform a variety of tasks. Using keyboard shortcuts is often faster than using a mouse because you can keep both hands on the keyboard. Keyboard shortcuts are also universal, which means you can use many of the same shortcuts in a variety of applications. For example, you can use the shortcuts to copy and paste text in a word processor and in a web browser.

Watch the video below to learn more about keyboard shortcuts in Windows.

Many keyboard shortcuts require you to press two or more keys in a specific order. For example, to perform the shortcut Ctrl+X, you would press and hold the Ctrl key, then press the X key, then release.

You'll use the Ctrl (Control) or Alt key to perform most keyboard shortcuts. You'll find these keys near the bottom-left corner of your keyboard.

These keyboard shortcuts are useful when working with text in word processors, email applications, and more. They can help you perform commonly repeated tasks, like copying and pasting text.

You can use keyboard shortcuts to open, close, and switch applications. When working with a file, like a Microsoft Word document, shortcuts can be used to create new files, find words, and print.

Keyboard shortcuts can also be used to navigate your web browser. Many of the text shortcuts above are also useful online, like the shortcuts for selecting, copying, and pasting text into your web browser's address bar. Note that some of these shortcuts may work a bit differently depending on the web browser you're using.

When you press the Alt key, you will have access to all of the menus in the current application. This means you can perform almost any task with just your keyboard. For example, you can type Alt+F+X to quit an application. When performing these shortcuts, you will not need to hold down the Alt key.

In many applications, you'll find keyboard shortcuts next to menu items.

In some applications, you may need to hover over a button to display its keyboard shortcut.

If you want to learn even more keyboard shortcuts, review this lesson from our Tech Savvy Tips and Tricks tutorial.
