I am in an IVA (20 months gone).
The IVA is in my name only.
My wife might have a job offer in the near future.
Will she need to surrender 50% of her pay or is that separate to me, as it is only in my name?
Also if she does have to surrender some, then I guess that we can maybe review the I&E to take into consideration her extra costs (travel, clothing, etc..) ??
Any info gratefully accepted, as ever.... you guys truly are a lifeline to so many of us.
It may well be that your IP company need to know in case your wife is able to contribute more to the household expenses.
I'd give your IP a ring to see what they say.

My partners salary was classed as household income for the purposes of my IVA, even though the IVA is for me only.
Any overtime, bonuses or windfalls SHE gets need not be handed over to my IVA. I don`t know what would happen if she got a new job with more money though, as my creditors agreed to the terms and figures of my proposal at that time, after all, any wage increase would be her`s surely?

Your partner's new income will only need to be taken into account for the purpose of sharing bills - which is likely to see your share reducing and thus your disposable income increasing. She ought not to have to pay over any of her surplus to your IVA.
