FRO collects, distributes and enforces child and spousal support payments.

We help families in Ontario get the support payments they are entitled to by enforcing court-ordered support responsibilities. We work to flow payments from the person who pays the support (the payor) to the person who is entitled to it (the recipient).

Every year, the Family Responsibility Office:

  • handles more than 180,000 cases
  • has about 380,000 clients
  • collects about $650 million in support payments.
