The federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) develops Caseworker’s Guides intended to assist with implementation of federal-level international child support agreements.  OCSE issued earlier versions of A Caseworker’s Guide to Processing Cases with Canada on July 21, 2005 (IM-05-08) and September 8, 2011 (IM-11-01).  With this Information Memorandum, OCSE provides an updated version of the Guide, which includes policy and other information for Prince Edward Island, the most recent Canadian province to implement a child support agreement with the U.S.

The attached Caseworker’s Guide to Processing Cases with Canada contains the following information:

  • Part A – Federal-level Reciprocity Agreements between the U.S. and Canadian Provinces and Territories
  • Part B - Outgoing Child Support Packages from the U.S. to Canada (including Forms Charts)
  • Part C - Incoming Child Support Packages from Canada to the U.S. (including Forms Charts)
  • Part D - Policy
