Yes, you are allowed to go away when in an IVA, especially when someone else is paying for it!

Congratulations on the pregnancy and forthcoming wedding.

I would speak to your IP company now and inform them of the change of circumstances. You might be able to take a payment break.

My Mil has funded a week away for myself and hubby in November, the wedding sound idyllic. Hope you have a great time and a big congratulations from me on the wedding and the new addition due in February.

As Jan says talk to your IP x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

If your parents are paying all of the expenses for the wedding, then it is up to them how they spend their money and I hope you all have a great day.

With regard to your current preganancy, you should immediately inform your IP of this, and start considering how the arrival of the new little one may affect your monthly budget and hence IVA payments.

Wishing you the best of luck on both counts!

I got married in May - very low key and was paid for by my parents, who are aware of the IVA. They paid for us to have a mini honeymoon too, bless them!
Congrats on the forthcoming wedding and new baby[:)]

Congratulations for both the wedding and the baby! You're lucky to have such generous parents.

If my OH and I ever get round to it we'll have to pay for our own so it'll be somewhere overseas!

Fantastic news - congratulations!

Melanie is completely right of course, if your parents are funding it then you shouldn't worry about going away.

However, if your salary will reduce in the future then you should tell your IP as soon as possible. They will advise you on whether it would be possible to organise a payment break or a reduction in contributions - your creditors will need to vote on any change to the original proposal, so it's best to discuss this as early as possible.

Take care. :)
Take care,
