What happens next
We'll waive the payments from the liable parent named in the form, starting from the date you request.
If you want to restart payments for the same parent, use the request ‘Cancel a payment waiver’.
If you want to stop getting your child support from both parents, you need to cancel your child support entirely.
Cancel your child support
If you're getting the sole parent rate of benefit or Unsupported Child's Benefit, you cannot cancel child support.
