If Social Security was paying your child support
in the full amount as ordered, then she would have been paid and there is no need to pay the alleged arrears as those would be a mistake. In general when you get social security disability the amount your children get is substracted from your child support, so if that amount paid the amount of your monthly support then the arrears can be cleared up. Now if your SSD benefits only covered a portion of your support obligations then you would be responsible for the difference. So you need to make sure the amount you are now being asked to pay is not the difference and that your actual SSD paid the total monthly amount owed. If so, then you are not obligated to pay her twice for something that was already covered.
