Hi
Then I am afraid arrears have arisen and the CSA are now enforcing them
Do not ignore them - they have very wide enforcement powers
You are entitled to a copy of your file under the Freedom Of Information Act which will allow you to check the calculations - but you will need to make some offer of settlement I am afraid

Hi
I am afraid that it is entirely possible for it to happen - especially if your ex was in the receipt of benefits
