There are times when, because an insolvent partners income cannot support an IVA thet it will be based on a solvent spouse's income --- but that is something to be discussed if the need arises.
Obviously tip your IP off so they know whats going on, so if it does become too much of a burden down the line you refer back to organise a payment break or whatever.
Make sure and use a firm with experience of self employed matters as these IVAs are different.
Only after these options have been explored and potentially discounted would I resort to asking your wife to help with the payments.
Also do not tell them you wife can and is offering to help with the payments, otherwise there won't be an incentive to consider reducing them...
