Your options have been explained in the other posts. A DMP is dependent on creditors co-operating and will leave you to settle the debts out of his estate, should he sadly pass. A failed IVA is possibly going to make the creditors less likely to help, but it might be worth having a chat with Stepchange ( they do fee-free DMPs and have close ties with creditors).

As also mentioned in replies to your other posts, maybe looking at a full and final, based on payments made to date is worth looking at. Basically, explaining the dire circumstances to the creditors and asking them to "call it quits". This way the IVA is successfully ended early and the debts wiped clean. If you are seriously thinking of cancelling the IVA anyway, you have little to lose by asking.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
