If you're a receiving carer and you do not want to receive child support anymore, you can cancel it.
If there is recognised care in place for a child, all carers must agree to cancel.
The easiest way to cancel is in myIR. You can cancel for an individual child or for a child support group, which is for all the children in your care that a liable parent pays you for. You may have more than 1 child support group.
Before you start
- the name of the liable parent
- the date you want child support to stop.
In myIR, select 'More...' on the Child support - Receiving carer panel
Select the right option
Choose ‘Cancel your child support group’ to cancel for all children in your care that a liable parent pays you for.
Choose ‘Child no longer qualifies’ to cancel for an individual child.
Fill in the details and submit
Log in to myIR
What happens next
We may get in touch with you to confirm a few details.
We'll cancel your child support from the date you give us on the form.
If you do not want us to collect any money still owed to you, you'll need to fill out a separate form.
If you're getting the Unsupported Child's Benefit for a child, you cannot cancel for child support for that child.
If you cancel your child support, you’ll need to reapply for child support if you would like payments to start again.
If you have asked us not to collect any child support payments, you cannot later ask us to collect them. If you change your mind and would like the payments collected, you can collect those by applying through the Family Court.
