    My ex was reassessed on the new system and the amount was less than on csa. I wasn't sure if he was getting the letters the new service were sending to him so asked what I'd need to do if the original amount was still being paid. The man replied that it'd be a bonus for me and never implied it'd need to be sent back as it would be the ex's fault, no on elses.

    Overpayments are like arrears. They don't go away! Only the person that is owed the money can write them off so it may not be a bonus to you.
