Are you sure your debt is that figure and not just what creditors have claimed through the iva process so far ? What did your proposal document list as your debt figures ?
A debt relief order or debt management plan maybe more appropriate if the figure is correct.
If you fail the IVA now it will still be on your credit files for 6 years and will trash your credit rating. There is also the chance that your creditors will not co-operate in a DMP, especially already having agreed to one lifeline which you failed.
Weigh up your options carefully -- having got the IVA it might be better to now knuckle down and see it through ... at least you have an end date to work towards.
I personally think anything under 25k shouldn't be in an IVA, but another repayment mechanism. Effectly, it's a sum that some people might earn within a couple of years, or if enough family and friends, might be able to help with, instead of having your home under lock down for 6 years and potentially feeling that you're a prisoner for 12 years, because the completion part is only the first half of the sentence, so to speak.
