Use this form if you're getting child support or domestic maintenance and you want us to stop collecting payments from the liable parent.
You can ask us not to collect all or part of the money owing. You cannot uplift any penalties owed by the liable parent/person as these are owed to the government.
Only the receiving carer, the person getting the child support payments, can complete this form.
Gather your information
You'll need your:

You'll need to complete the following forms if you do not want us to collect any future child support or domestic maintenance payments.
Cancel your domestic maintenance
If you're getting the sole parent rate of benefit or Unsupported Child's Benefit, you cannot ask us to stop collecting child support. But, you can ask us to stop collecting payments of domestic maintenance or court-ordered lump sums of child support.
Once you have asked us not to collect payments for the dates you provide, you cannot later ask us to collect them. If you're still owed payments outside of those dates, you can collect them by applying through the District Court.
