You can try to see if you can close down your IVA with payments to date or you could offer a full and final if you could raise funds from a family member perhaps, otherwise you will have to continue paying.

I would explain your circumstances to your IP and suggest a offer of payments to date based on your ability to continue paying due to change of circumstances of your husbands ill health - they can put it to creditors to gain a decision.

Be prepared to explain in detail your change of circumstances, as I believe the more they are told, the better informed they are to make a decision

There is a solution for everyone .... Just need to stay positive !

We cannot really add much more to the replies already given on this subject in your other posts. It boils down to you and your IP working, hopefully, together to find a way through this. Have you discussed the situation with him or her yet ?
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
