Election not to enforce court order or to withdraw from voluntary agreement

About this service

This service is used if you are entitled to receive child support or domestic maintenance under a court order or voluntary agreement, and you wish this to stop. It is the same as completing the Election not to enforce court order or to withdraw from voluntary agreement (IR112) form. If you are receiving a sole parent rate of benefit and you wish to withdraw from a child support court order or voluntary agreement, please phone us on 0800 221 221.

When to use this service

Use this service if:

  • you are entitled to receive child support or domestic maintenance payments under a court order or voluntary agreement
  • there is no outstanding child support owed by the liable person
  • the liable person still owes some child support to you and you want us to collect it.
  • the liable person still owes some child support to you but you will collect it yourself.

Note:
Only the person entitled to receive child support or domestic maintenance can make this election - the liable person cannot make this election on behalf of the other party.

This service will take about ten minutes to complete.

What you will need
  • Your IRD number - if you don't have your IRD number contact us on 0800 227 774.
  • The liable person's IRD number.
After you finish

If the liable person still owes you child support, you can choose to collect the debt (including any penalties) yourself.

To do this you'll need to print an IR129 election form, complete and sign it, then post it back to us.  We need this form in paper format because the law says we must hold your approval and signature before passing over the debt collection responsibility.
