Type of service
Inter-jurisdictional Support

Services offered
When a family splits up or the parents of a child don’t live together, sorting out questions about family support, or maintenance, can be difficult.

The Inter-jurisdictional Support Orders Act (ISO) has created a process to obtain or vary (change) a support order when one of the two parties involved lives outside the Yukon, in a reciprocal jurisdiction.

ISO does not apply to support orders under the federal Divorce Act, or where both parties live in the Yukon.
