The easiest way to get money back is to TALK to the freelancer first.
If they finished 50% of the job, then ask if they can refund 50% of the money. Then you close the contract, and when you see field for how much money to release, you edit the amount to be 50%.
Then finalize closing contract. The freelancer will get a refund request, click that they agree, and you get the money within five business days.
