To submit an application to the Service administratif de rajustement des pensions alimentaires pour enfants(SARPA):

  1. Use the online Questionnaire on eligibility to use the SARPA in order to verify eligibility or fill out the Questionnaire on eligibility to use the SARPA; or
  2. Fill out the Application Form – Child Support Recalculation.
  3. Attach the documents requested and mail them to SARPA, or drop them off at the nearest legal aid office, where they will be forwarded to SARPA.

If only one of the parents applied, SARPA will send a letter to the other parent in order to obtain the documents required to recalculate the support.  

SARPA notifies the parents in writing of its recalculation of support and sends a copy of the notice to Revenu Québec and the office of the court in the district where the last support order was rendered.
