Hi my son is 20 years old next month, so this is how long it’s been with csa and then child maintenance.. at first he dodged jobs every time they caught up with him, he’s now married to an accountant and she is doing his books and made up a limited company in her name.. could she get in trouble for doing this.. Unfortunately I know his wife is ill informed about the whole situation, so I don’t blame her, she has no kids herself, but surely a women would have some kind of empathy to another women struggling to bring her son up on her own.. thanks in advance 😊

Her empathy is not your problem. She is not responsible to you or your son, and since you admit that she is not aware of the full situation, it is unreasonable to think she has been given any version of it that makes her husband the bad guy....
I'm sorry it isn't what you want to hear, but you don't have a claim on her.

You need to be sure though as there are many ways to both configure a company and report "income" for whatever purpose.
Working tax credits had a flaw in that people could set up a company and choose to pay themselves peanuts in order to claim. Now, quite rightly anything that is controlled is taken into account for UC, not sure about child maintenance though.
Presumably they have been married longer than a week and dated before that and this has been happening for at least while so why do it now?
You can do as you like, I have no opinion either way, but reporting earlier, if you are correct, may have resulted in more CMS.
