New Conditions for the Return of Security to a Debtor
On June 15, 2012, section 34 of the Act to Facilitate the Payment of Support was amended. As a result, we must, at the debtor’s request, return the security he or she provided, so long as the following conditions are met:
- The debtor has been exempted from the obligation to remit support payments to Revenu Québec for at least two years.
- No arrears or fees are owing as at the date of the request.
- The creditor consents to the security being returned.
The creditor can notify us of his or her consent by filing a duly completed copy of form PPA-70-V, Consent to Have Security Returned to the Debtor: Exemption.
Note that the return of security under such conditions does not affect the support judgment; the creditor retains the right to notify us of any failure on the part of the debtor to make a support payment.
For more information about the new conditions, contact the person in charge of your file or go to Exemption from Remitting Support Payments to Revenu Québec.
