If you are the recipient of support, do not receive state assistance, and wish to waive all or part of the support owed to you, you may complete the Arrearage Forgiveness / Request for Credit Order (PDF) form, sign in front of a notary public, and provide same to our office. A member of our staff will review the case and account and if appropriate, submit it to the Judge for entry of the order.
