Hi! I am new to upwork. I have completed the job of my client and already paid the milestones. The problem is the client did not end the contract. Can I end the contract on my own and still get paid?

Yes.

YOU can end the contract.

 

Because you were ALREADY paid.

 

If you END the contract yourself, then all money remaining in escrow goes back to the client.


But because there is NO MONEY LEFT in escrow, you can go ahead and end the contract yourself. You won't lose any money.

You can end a contract yourself, but you shouldn't. Let the client do it, this way he has to leave feedback for you.
