1. Nova Scotia allows direct payments in exceptional circumstances to be made and received by their clientele, however, unauthorized direct payments are not encouraged. Since some of these direct payments are not reported until after the survey data are collected, some payors are reported as not having paid, even though they actually have. About 1% of cases each month report a payment, or payments, being made in a previous month.
Note: Includes non-interjurisdiction support order and interjurisdictional support order-out cases with at least one child beneficiary under the age of 20 and with a known location.
