A freelancer I'm working with has requested payment for the work done but we are only half way through. I'm happy to release half of the amount and she agrees that only half should be paid now, but she already submitted the request for full payment.
How can I release only part of the payment?

On the pre-established milestone, when you click the green "Pay Now" button, you'll be presented with the option of releasing a smaller amount and leaving the rest of the funds in escrow to apply to new milestones that you want to create. You can select the "Keep the contract open- I've got more work for (Freelancer's name)". Thank you.

I have a fixed fee contract. I would like to divide by milestones but doing this just increases the contract total amount. Is there a way to release partial payment or if I hit pay will it release the entire amount?

I asked the freelancer to request funds. They did and the payment was made. You do not need to respond at this point.
