When we entered the IVA with my ex husband the advise was that we pay 60 payment and the debts will be written off. We have been good payers but since separation can't keep up with the estimated figures. Is it the only option for us to end the IVA? Can we ask for modification of the arrears to be removed after 9 remaining payments.???

The outstanding amount would be £4400 only. We both live in rented accommodation and don't have any valuables. What I don't understand is that from the £4400 half of the money wold go towards IP and admin fees so our creditors wouldn't compensate a lot. If I consider only remaining 9 payments our creditors would get 17.49p/£ against 18.03p/£ proposed on our proposal in 2014. Is it the only option to end my IVA without failing?
When my marriage went south we asked creditors to accept payments made to date, which was 32p in the pound rather than the 33p promised. We had made extra payments in the early days. They accepted (we were halfway through the term). But, unlike a normal F&F, you will probably only get one chance at it, so make the best offer you can.
If they refuse the IVA will fail and everything you have done so far will be flushed away. The creditors will add back lost interest and the debts will increase.
Incidentally -- out of that £4400 the IP should only get around 15%

In a full and final you can come back with a better offer, but in this case you are offering to put right missed payments, which could fail the IVA if the creditors don't forgive them. I doubt you will get a second chance (but I could be wrong).
