Child support debt

So, DP's son is 25 this year and just yesterday we received an 'updated assessment' from the child support agency dated 2012! 2 attached documents for 2 months of incorrectly paid maintenance, though no tax invoice as such to make payment. I can't really make sense of it at all and DP is far from happy about it. Don't get me wrong, he'll definately pay if he has too, but we can't see the reasoning.
We paid all due child support to mother as required without fail every month, until son turned 18 (he did not go on to any further education), and have heard nothing for 7 years.

Did your dp estimate his income during that time, or recently lodge any old tax returns? Or did his ex? Are his tax returns up to date for that period of time, or have child support had to use best guesses for his income, which they may have updated?
There are a lot of reasons why it may have changed, the letters can be confusing, best bet is to call them Monday.

DP has always done his tax every year, not a time he hasn't. Only thing i can think of is she has done hers for the first time..ever! Mind you, he lived with us for 6 years and she never paid us a cent.

Did this come through an email? I would be wary. A lot of scams are about during tax time. Don't click on any links go in via the child support website.

Yeah it’s probably that she has done hers. Crazy that they can issue a reassessment after all that time!!
