If you stop paying without talking to your IP, your IVA is likely to fail.

Please contact your IP as soon as possible, as they can write to your creditors and request more time, or a reschedule of a few payments. They should be happy to help.

Best of luck. :)
Take care,

You need to contact your IP as soon as possible.

Did you have any redundancy pay? If so, you can use this to fund your living expenses whilst looking for another job, usually for up to six months.

You could probably negotiate a payment break of up to 12 months, by way of a variation meeting, but given your lack of assets then perhaps bankruptcy proceedings are also worthy of consideration at this stage.
