If my former employer mistakenly deposited money into my bank account, doI have to repay more than what was deposited?

I left my old employment 4 months ago and last week it made an error and direct deposited close to $600 to my account. Now it is requesting that I repay it $992. I am assuming this is the gross amount before taxes and maybe child support. I am returning the $600 that was deposited, however I fail to see how I responsible for any amount above that. I am already paying for child support so any amount deducted from their error would not give me a credit in the state where I am paying support.
