Unfortunately it appears that the CSA debt cannot be extinguished by bankruptcy - Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 1985, c66, s55(2)(d)(ii)

They should still be taking money if you are still supposed to be making child support payments, but only for your up to date ongoing payments. Not for any of the debt included with your bankruptcy. If you should not be making any child support payments anymore then they should not be taking anything from your wages.

I hope that helps! It is an awkward debt when included with bankruptcy as it sometimes appears that they are taking debt payments from your wages. They should send you an up to date statement of what you should be paying after your date of award. If they havenít it might be worth giving them a phone and asking for that.
