Authorise us to stop collecting child support or domestic maintenance

 

If you're getting a Work and Income benefit that includes a sole parent rate, you cannot cancel a formula assessment for child support.

Once you have cancelled child support payments, 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.
