    You need to establish where these arrears have come from and you need to this by writing a strong letter of complaint. In the letter outline your concerns, that you need evidence/paperwork for their claims and that you will be seeing your MP.

    Then make an appointment to see your MP asap.

    I write this from experience, my husband had the arrears envelope dropped on him for £15,000 a few years back and we had the case dropped as soon as we got the MP involved and kept on at the CSA demanding information.

    It takes time but worth it if there has been mistakes.

    Best of luck.
