Which means if you have not been contacted about a debt within six years, there is legislation in place to prevent debtors harrassing you for said debt. I'll let you know what happens next.

It isn't just about being contacted, it is to do more with making any acknowledgement or payment of the debt. Debt collectors will often say you have made a nominal payment of say...5 within the 6 years just to get around the law, and they will generate paperwork to prove it, including copies of supposed postal orders sent within that time which were never sent.

I get a letter every month from a different company for a very small debt from when I was pregnant. My daughter it now 13 1/2 and the debt doesn't even show on my credit check any more. Despite a letter to them, they have apparent evidence of me paying 5 each year.

Hmmmmmm

Hope you get it all sorted tankrat

I too had this problem and my divorce cost me two and half grand. My x's contribution!!! was 75 quid. It wasn't my fault that he was a control freak and abuzer. My friends said if I stayed with him I would not be alive now. So beware out there see what you are singing up for. I know all you want is freedom. At least I am free and struggling to make ends meet but I is alive. And two and a half grand was not really down the drain. Sometimes you have to put things into prospective

Exactly Sally
Have a look at my post https://www.wikiwirral.co.uk/forums/ubbth...html#Post213704

But check out the Letters in those links how crafty they want to be. I will say after i sent out the Template letter i never heard from them any more.

Main point is : If you don't believe its your debt say so, and agree to nothing on the phone or otherwise.

Hope that help as it is a shock to the system, but from what you have posted don't worry you are in the clear smile

If it's the very same family law solicitor we know only to well about your problems with them as we are trying to pursue having filled all the forms for legal aid and the back ground of the problem over two & a half months ago and every time we contacted them was told they would be in touch.We phoned first thing last monday morning only to be told our solicitor had left!!!! And we are still waiting for them to phone. !I feel so sorry for tankrat 22 and hope you get it sorted and as for our case fph can \/ off lol

I have recently discovered that my ex who I divorced eons ago has been living with another bloke for 8 years while still claiming maintenance off me. I think she uses it to pay for her twice-yearly trips to Australia to see his kids who emigrated there. I am wondering if I can get back pay as she was not entitled to money from me if she was cohabiting with him. I haven't spoken to her for over ten years anyway. (I don't like to interrupt her!!) Any comments from the team please?

Cohabiting doesn't automatically reduce the right to maintenance, unlike re-marriage. But you can get a court to re-assess the maintenance.

Speak to citizens advice possibly.
