HAS, the Homologation Assistance Service, allows you to modify custody, access rights and support payments for your child or your ex-partner.
You can also modify child support for an adult child, but you must inform the child of it. In addition, you can cancel the child support if your child agrees and is financially independent.
This service applies to you if:
You and your ex-partner reside in Quebec.
You have a judgment regarding child custody or support payments for a child or an ex-partner.
You and your ex-partner are in agreement about the modification of the judgment.
Cost: $318,50 per parent This amount is indexed each year and is subject to change without notice.
The service is free of charge for parents who are financially eligible for legal aid, subject to the rules applicable to eligibility with contribution. While this service is administered by a legal aid office, it is accessible to all separated parents.
Fill out the request form and retrieve the necessary documents (a copy of the judgment to be modified, a copy of the child support determination form, proof of income if applicable, etc.).
Make an appointment at a legal aid office that serves your place of residence to submit your request with your ex-partner or separately.
A lawyer will assist you with the preparation of documents until a new judgment is rendered.
