Unfortunately, the statute of limitations does not apply to child support arrearages. So, you will need to contact the Department of Child Support Enforcement to find out why they gave you the money back. You will want to ensure that there is not an accounting glitch somewhere, otherwise your husband could be facing more problems in the future.
