The biggest problem is the fact that you're locked in from the moment you sign up. I think there should be an exit mechanism if your circumstances change significantly.
I don't think most people are really in a position to understand the full implications of an IVA at the point when they're vulnerable enough to enter one. You've only got to look around here to see how confusing it gets.
For me right now, for example. I'm in a position where I'm paying back more each month than my original debt repayments and the fact that I'm in an IVA is possibly going to end up costing me £1000 a month because I can't get the liability insurance I need to set up a ltd company so I have to go down the umbrella route and pay PAYE. If I could turn back the clock, I definitely wouldn't do it.

Ha ha! Trouble is, I've never been that bad at making money. I was just with someone who destroyed my confidence and deprived me of that ability. It's taken me 5 years to get my confidence back. Unfortunately, that was about 2 years too long.
Never mind... we live and learn!
