iSupport - New successful EU Action Grant application

The Permanent Bureau of the HCCH is pleased to announce a new successful EU Action Grant application for iSupport. This new project will be called iSupport ITMF (International Transfer of Maintenance Funds), as it will aim at establishing a link between the iSupport software and bank accounts held by Central Authorities. The project will rely on guidance provided by the Experts’ Group on International Transfer of Maintenance Funds.

iSupport is an electronic case management and secure communication system for the cross-border recovery of maintenance obligations under the EU 2009 Maintenance Regulation and the 2007 HCCH Child Support Convention.

The proposal was submitted in May 2021, with the support of the following States and organisations: Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Germany, Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland, the European Bailiff’s Foundation and the Chambre Nationale des Commissaires de Justice. These States and organisations participated in the preparation of the application and generously offered contributions.

iSupport is being used by France and Portugal. Eight further States from Europe and Latin America are expected to join soon and start using iSupport.

All relevant documentation relating to iSupport is available on the iSupport section of the HCCH website. For further information, please contact
