[Solved] Application withdrawn and closed 7 years ago has now been reopen?

New Member Registered


An ex who left without telling me she was pregnant contacted CMS in 2014 when child was 7years to agree child maint. I then received a letter within months from CMS advising she no longer wanted to pursue application and case closed.

Today I have received a letter from CMS advising I am to start payments effective immediately.

Does anyone know if once she closed the case it could be reopened?  The letter I received got mislaid in a recent house move along with birth certificates etc (not helpful).

Yes I heard a cms case can be reopened if resident parent requests it, and as long as child still qualifies for child benefit.
