The child support regime is aimed at the parents of children. Under the Child-Support Act and other legislation, it is not possible to claim against the partner or spouse of a parent, just because they happen to be married or a partner of a liable parent. I am not aware of any cases where someone has claimed successfully in a situation like yours. I hope it is not a lawyer trying this somewhat difficult claim. But if she is just correcting this herself, you can tell her that she has no legal basis to do so
