    paying my late fathers alleged csa arrears 11th Feb 11 at 3:54 PM
    My Father passed away last year and as his son I dealt with his estate. As he did not live with My Mum he paid child support up until 1998 when I turned 18. The csa took money straight from his earnings so I am certain he owed no arrears, I even found a letter stating that he had actually overpaid.
    Unfortunately I have recently received a letter stating that he apparently owed 2000 in arrears and as executor of estate I am liable for.
    Now they have sent me a bill with no proof of the arrears owed from 13 years ago, asking me to pay arrears that are owed for the upkeep of myself Now it seems a little strange they have waited 13 years and until my Dad is dead to send this bill and the whole situation seems a little bizarre to me. Is there not a statutory limit on how long they can chase a debt for? and should i just bin this letter and forget about it? as I hear the csa are like a dog with a bone.
