I am in debt by £30000 and my IVA has just failed. I am waiting for the paperwork to come through. What are my options. A DMP will take to long, I cant go bankrupt due to my job. Maybe another IVA. The reason the first IVA failed was because it was too rigid and my circumstances changed big time and it was too much. Any advice!!

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

So sorry to hear that your IVA has failed.

You could go to another company and try again. Visit for a list of companies and reviews. Give one or two a ring and you will receive free and impartial advice.

Hi sorry to hear your IVA failed, it may be worth talking to another professional about proposing another and the link that Kallis provides is a good starting point. x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

As the others have said, approach a few IP's and see if another IVA is an option. I guess the positive is, you will now be more aware of what you can realistically afford to pay back.

Good luck and please keep us updated xx

I seem to be doing quite a lot of second time round IVAs at the moment - and so long as the reasons for the failure of the first one are valid, and you can demonstrate commitment to another arrangementm, why not make another application. You have nothing really to lose.
