My wife and I both started IVAs in 2012. Hers was five years, mine 6 years due to low yield.

Tomorrow is the date for her final review and my annual review and we wondered what to expect?

Will she be allowed to keep more of her income or will any excess just be added to my payment?

Will there be any extra documents we need to produce?

All reviews so far have gone OK and we haven't missed any payments (more by luck than judgement on a few occasions)

Would it now be better to open separate bank accounts rather than the joint account we have used throughout this?

I would expect that her payments will cease and yours continue for the extra year. She should be able to keep her money to spend as she sees fit and would have no obligation to your IVA.

If she is due to finish then her money will then be her own. She will not be expected to pay towards yours.

The IVAs are not interlocking, I presume, so you have been making seperate payments ... so hers will simply stop and yours will continue. Her finances will have no bearing on your IVA.

Well that's just the best answer we could hope for. That light at the end of the tunnel just got brighter :)

It just got so bright I'm wondering if an express train is coming. :shock:

Payment reduced by over £400

I can't believe the sense of relief :D

I was just thinking that 8)

But being sensible it will be a few days in England so we can take the dogs.

This time next year though.............
