2. Under Milestone Payments, look for the In Progress Milestone that you wish to cancel.
3. Click the drop-down arrow beside Request Release and choose Cancel.
4. Confirm to cancel the Milestone Payment.

Canceling a Milestone Payment will remove it from the project, returning the funds to the client's Freelancer.com account balance. Cancelled Milestone Payments can no longer be disputed through the Dispute Resolution Service.
