Just an update to this, I contacted child support and they got back to me a few days later and told me that my ex is no longer getting child benefit.

I still owe 7k debt anyway down from 12k. CSA fault not mine and they have admitted it. I've even got a copy of the recorded calls to them admitting it. So they have been flexible with the debt payments letting me clear them off in my own time. I was paying £300 a month inc arrears payments and this is now half what it was at £150 a month.

It's just a shame my ex wasn't forth coming in letting them know CB payments had stopped and was happy to take the £180 a month extra I was paying. They've back dated and took the extra payments off the debt
